#### Work Step by Step

$\bf{\text{Solution Outline:}}$
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, $
-7
$ appears on the $\text{
left
}$ of $
-5
.$ Hence, it is $\text{
