$x\gt-6 \text{ AND } x\lt6$
$\bf{\text{Solution Outline:}}$ If there is only $1$ graph, use "AND." If there are two separate graphs, use "OR." For a graph that uses a parenthesis as an endpoint, use $\lt$ or $\gt.$ For a graph that uses a bracket as an endpoint, use $\le$ or $\ge.$ $\bf{\text{Solution Details:}}$ Since the given graph contains only a single graph, then "AND" will be used. Since parentheses are used as endpoints in the given graph, then $\lt$ or $\gt$ will be used. The compound inequality that satisfies the given graph is \begin{array}{l}\require{cancel} x\gt-6 \text{ AND } x\lt6 .\end{array}
