## Steph_Rawr352 2 years ago Explain, in complete sentences, how you would use the graphing method to solve the following system of inequalities and what the final solution will look like on the coordinate plane. x – 2y –8 7x + y < –6

lol i've lost myself too.. lol it's ohk

3. austin420

wat the heck is the graphing method?

4. Varuns

What's the first equation. Is there an = missing?

5. Steph_Rawr352

oh whoops it's supposed to be x - 2y *greater than or equal to* -8

6. ZayTovenn12

Does x – 2y –8= 7x + y < –6 .?

7. Steph_Rawr352

idk i dont think so.. /: sorry this is rly confusing for me too.. i haven't learned this stuff yet.. it's a pre-test

8. Varuns

Well, its quite simple. Plot x-2y+8 =0. You can do that by equating x to zero and calculate y. That gives you a point (0,y). Next put y=0 and find x. You get the second point (x,0). Draw a line between these two points on the graph. Do the same thing for the next equation and draw a line. The intersection point is your result :)

thank you! c: I'll try to do this.. This helped me understand it more thank you a lot(:
