I am trying to retake my math class and I am now in inequality and they want me to find the answer on a number line. I believe I found the answer as x>11/7 but I am clueless after that. Thanks

Hey and thanks again skeeter, so would just counting lines and then including zero be how we could get to 11? or should I be looking at it a different way completely?

note that there are 7 divisions between each unit 1 = 7/7 1st mark after 1 = 8/7 2nd mark after 1 = 9/7 3rd mark after 1 = 10/7 4th mark after 1 = 11/7
