Hi Dana;

I wish I could draw a graph for you. I will do the best I can.

x ≥ -3

I do not know if you are familiar with the signs, > and <. When I was in the sixth grade, the way we remembered this is,

*The alligator is going to eat the bigger one*.In this circumstance, the alligator will eat anything which is equal to or greater than x as -3. On a graph, create a vertical line of x=-3 corresponding to all y=coordinates, and shade the area to the right.

You have to shadow half of coordinate plane on the right from the vertical solid line passing through x = - 3 and is parallel to the y-axis. The shadowed area will be the solution of the given inequality.

The graph is all of the plane on and to the right of the vertical line whose equation is x=-3. Take two points whose x-coordinates are -3, say (-3,-3), and (-3,3), connect with a straight line.
