#n> -\frac{15}{11}#

Explanation:

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

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

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

To graph it, you find #-\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.
