Question

Which number line shows the solution to the inequality? y minus 2 less-than negative 5 A number line going from negative 8 to positive 2. An open circle is at negative 3. Everything to the left of the circle is shaded. A number line going from negative 8 to positive 2. A closed circle is at negative 3. Everything to the left of the circle is shaded. A number line going from negative 8 to positive 2. An open circle is at negative 3. Everything to the right of the circle is shaded. A number line going from negative 8 to positive 2. An open circle is at negative 7. Everything to the left of the circle is shaded.

The number line which represents the solution bro the inequality y -2 < -5 is;
An open circle is at negative 3. Everything to the left of the circle is shaded.
First, we must solve the inequality so that it looks it’s simplest form in order to be represented on a number line.
Solving the inequality is as follows;
y – 2 < -5
y < -5 +2
y < -3.
In essence, representation of the inequality, y < -3 on the number line is as follows;
An open circle is at negative 3. Everything to the left of the circle is shaded.
PS: It is only a closed circle if the inequality includes an equal to sign.
