Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It is based on the sign. For example \[y >x\] You graph the function, in this case it is line X. Then you see the sign. In this case it is the greater than sign. So since y are the values you are plotting on the graph with the appropiate x. So it is everything above line equals x. The answer doesn't include line equals x values because it doesn't have the greater than or equal to sign which would be \[\ge\]. Any more questions?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\le\] The previous sign means it includes the values of the line you graphed and everything below it. So \[<\] means you don't include the values of the function but you do include everything below it.
