## Introductory Algebra for College Students (7th Edition)

The solutions of the given inequality are the numbers that greater than $-1$ but are less than $3$. To graph the solutions on a number line, plot holes (or hollow dots) at $x=-1$ and $x=3$ (alternatively, a parenthesis may be used instead of a hole). Then, shade the region between the two. (refer to the attached image in the answer portion above)
