Answer

$x \leq -6$ or $x \gt2$

Work Step by Step

We see that the graph is shaded for all values less than -6, so we know that the inequality should represent that a variable, x, is less than -6. Because -6 is also shaded on the graph, we know that x is less than or equal to -6. The graph is also shaded for all values above 2, so we know that x is greater than 2. 2 is not shaded on the graph, so we know that x is strictly greater than 2.
