# How do you solve n>(-3n-15)/8 and graph the solution on a number line?

Apr 27, 2017

$n > - \setminus \frac{15}{11}$

#### Explanation:

Multiply both sides by 8 to get
$8 n > - 3 n - 15$

Then you can add $3 n$ to both sides
$11 n > - 15$

Divide both sides by 11 to get the final answer
$n > - \setminus \frac{15}{11}$

To graph it, you find $- \setminus \frac{15}{11}$ which is about -1.36. and put an open dot because the point does not satisfy the inequality. Then you draw the arrow to the right since it is greater than that point.
