Work Step by Step
Graph a blank number line and label the intervals accordingly. In $-3\lt f$, $-3$ is not a solution, so when graphing the inequality, there needs to be an open circle at the point $-3$. The numbers less than $-3$ are to the left of $-3$ on the number line, and the numbers greater than $-3$ are to the right of $-3$ on the number line. Because the inequality states that $-3$ is less than $f$, we shade to the right of our point of $-3$. Now, the graph should look like the one shown in the answer.
