# How do you solve n+6<=3 and graph the solution on a number line?

Jul 24, 2018

$n \le - 3$

#### Explanation:

$n + 6 \le 3$

Subtract $\textcolor{b l u e}{6}$ from both sides:
$n + 6 \quad \textcolor{b l u e}{- \quad 6} \le 3 \quad \textcolor{b l u e}{- \quad 6}$

$n \le - 3$

Here's a graph of it on a number line:

The closed circle on $- 3$ means that $- 3$ is one of the solutions (and anything less than it).

Hope this helps!
