$-3 \lt x \lt 2$

#### Work Step by Step

The graph is shaded for all values above -3, so we know that x is greater than -3. -3 is not shaded on the graph, so we know that x is strictly greater than -3. We see that the graph is shaded for all values less than 2, so we know that the inequality should represent that a variable, x, is always less than 2. Since 2 itself is not shaded in, we know that x is strictly less than 2.
