Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.03x+4y>12 divide by 3 x+4y>4 divide by 4 x+y>1 thats as close as you can get...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Whoops, sorry. Got stuck on another problem. So, as iharrell explained you can get it down to x+y>1. However, since you need to solve for y (according to the problem; usually his answer would also be acceptable), you subtract both sides by x and you are left with y > 1 + x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Solve the inequality 3x + 4y > 12 for y. 3x + 4y > 12 Subtract by 3x on both sides to get: 4y > 3x + 12 Divide by 4 to get the y by itself: y >  (3/4)x + 3 And there ya go! If you were to graph it, you'd shade everything above and to the left of the line.
