The arrow implies the ray goes on in the represented direction without end. Therefore, a ray aimed in the correct direction is of appropriate length no matter how long it is. Most texts I've seen show a ray above the number line. The key points would be: 1) ray pointed correctly, 2) algebraic inequality correctly written.
