Use parentheses if you want to include the end point and mark it with a closed circle / point. To exclude the end point, instead, use square brackets, represented by an empty circle.
When drawing a linear inequality on a number line, use an open circle for less than or greater and a closed circle for less than or equal or greater or equal to.
A closed (solid) point means that the end point is included in the curve and an open point means that it is not. It’s like the difference between less than or equal to and less than. In the graph you are showing, the colon is open, which means that the function in x_0 has no value, that is, it is undefined.
An empty circle at the end of a range means that the end point is not included in the range, that is, it is strictly smaller or larger. A closed circle means that the end point has been recorded.
When we draw differences on a number line, circles are used to indicate whether a number is included or not. An open circle indicates that the song has not been recorded while a closed circle contains the song. When we write the differences with the interval notation, brackets and square brackets are used.
A region (indicated by region R) is closed when region R contains all boundary points. If region R does not contain an endpoint, the domain is said to be open. If region R contains some, but not all, of the endpoints, the domain is said to be open and closed.
- Draw a line of numbers. 2) Place an open circle or closed point on the given number. For e, use a closed period to indicate that the number itself is part of the solution. Use an empty circle for
