sorry if this is too easy.

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

$7x > 11$

$\dfrac{7x}{7} > \dfrac{11}{7}$

$x > \dfrac{11}{7}$

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
