# Chapter 2 - Section 2.7 - Solving Linear Inequalities - Exercise Set: 24

Solution Set: $x \ge 7$ Refer to the image below for the graph.

#### Work Step by Step

Add 5 on both sides of the inequality to obtain: $x \ge 2+5 \\x \ge 7$ On a number line, the numbers that are greater than or equal to $7$are found from $7$ to the right. Thus, to graph the solution set on a number line, plot a solid dot at $x=7$ and shade the region to its right. (refer to the attached image in the answer part above)
