Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2FIRST, change it into SlopeIntercept form ~ \[x  6y \ge 18 \]Subtract x from both sides. \[6y \ge x  18\]Divide both sides by 6. Flip the sign to <=. \[y \le \frac{ 1 }{ 6 } x + 3\] Remember: y = mx + b m is slope b is yintercept \[y \le \frac{ 1 }{ 6 } x + 3\]Slope is 1/6 yintercept is 3 Graph the equation. Step 1) Plot the yintercept (3) at point (0, 3). Step 2) Remember that:\[slope = \frac{ rise }{ run } = \frac{ 1 }{ 6 }\]So from point (0, 3) RISE 1 space up, and RUN 6 spaces to the right. Plot this point.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2The sign was LESS than or EQUAL to. So the line would be SOLID. The shading would be underneath the line, or on the side that includes the origin.
