Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0first sketch the line 2y +x = 10 ( and it should be dashed because its only less than ( not less than or equal )

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0when you draw the line, it cuts the plane into two sections, and its either one section or the other , then you check a point ( you can pick any you like by (0,0) or (1,0) , smal numbers are easiest , you find a point where the inequality holds, and then you know the inequality is true in the "half plane " where your test point was.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0similarly , if you were to sub in the origin and it didnt satisfy the inequality then you know the region you want is the one that doesnt contain the origin
