Work Step by Step
Graph a blank number line and label the intervals accordingly. In $t\lt-4$, $-4$ is not a solution, so when graphing the inequality, there needs to be an open circle at the point $-4$. The numbers less than $-4$ are to the left of $-4$ on the number line, and the numbers greater than $-4$ are to the right of $-4$ on the number line. Because the inequality states that $t$ is less than $-4$, we shade to the left of our point of $-4$. Now, the graph should look like the one shown in the answer.
