Answer

$\text{a) solution }\\\text{b) NOT a solution }\\\text{c) NOT a solution }$

Work Step by Step

$\bf{\text{Solution Outline:}}$ Use the position of the number on the number line to evaluate if it satisfies the given inequality, $ x\gt-4 .$ $\bf{\text{Solution Details:}}$ The inequality $ x\gt-4 $ is satisfied by all numbers that appear on the right of $-4$ in the number line. a) In the number line, $ 4 $ appears on the $\text{ right }$ of $ -4.$ Hence, it is $\text{ a solution .}$ b) In the number line, $ -6 $ appears on the $\text{ left }$ of $ -4.$ Hence, it is $\text{ NOT a solution .}$ C) In the number line, $ -4 $ appears $\text{ exactly on }$ $ -4.$ Hence, it is $\text{ NOT a solution .}$ Therefore, \begin{array}{l}\require{cancel} \text{a) solution }\\\text{b) NOT a solution }\\\text{c) NOT a solution } \end{array}
