## Elementary and Intermediate Algebra: Concepts & Applications (6th Edition)

$\bf{\text{Solution Outline:}}$ Use the position of the number on the number line to evaluate if it satisfies the given inequality, $x\le-5 .$ $\bf{\text{Solution Details:}}$ The inequality $x\le-5$ is satisfied by all numbers that appear on/on the left of $-5$ in the number line. In the number line, $-3$ appears on the $\text{ right }$ of $-5 .$ Hence, it is $\text{ NOT a solution .}$
