another question in 4x-4<5(-1x-3)-3 i get x<-14/9 so in interval notation it would be (-infty, -14/9)..... () because it is < and not equal but why do i put infty (-) and why do i put it first?

you are simulating an abbreviated number line

OpenStudy (amistre64):

the number line goes from: -inf on the left, all the way to inf on the right

OpenStudy (anonymous):

okay buy why is it -infty, what about the equation makes it -, is it just - because 14/9 is or is there another reason?

OpenStudy (amistre64):

becasue all x's that can be used are to the left of -14/9 ; inequalities account for an area as opposed to a specific point

OpenStudy (anonymous):

so its because x is less than if it where greater than infty would be positive?
