## x-2+7>6

$x > 1$

#### Explanation:

$x - 2 + 7 > 6$

Let's first simplify the left hand side:

$x + 5 > 6$

We can now subtract 5 from both sides:

$x + 5 \textcolor{red}{- 5} > 6 \textcolor{red}{- 5}$

$x > 1$

To graph this, we put a hollow circle around the number 1 (to indicate that 1 is not a part of the solution), then draw a ray from that circle towards $+ \infty$.
