# On a number line how do you graph x+3 < -1?

Refer to the explanation.

#### Explanation:

Solve and graph:

$x + 3 < - 1$

Subtract $3$ from both sides.

$x < - 1 - 3$

Simplify.

$x < - 4$

To graph this on a number line, draw an open circle above the $- 4$ and shade in the part of the number line to the left of $- 4$.
