It is given that the tallest man who ever lived was approximately 8 feet and 11.1 inches. This means that the height, h, of every other person must be less than this. Therefore, we can write the following inequality:
Since there are 12 inches in 1 foot we can express the inequality in feet as follows.
In order to graph
we place an open dot, as the inequality sign is <, at 8.925 and then shade everything to the left of this point.
