    It looks like the slope of the line is -1/2 x, and the y-intercept is -4. The shaded region is below this line so that means y is less than -1/2 - 4 If the line was solid instead of dashed it would be y <= -1/2 x - 4 but since it is dashed we just say y < -1/2 x - 4

    It's hard to say but it looks like that is a slope of 6x with a y-intercept of 3 So the equation of the line is y = 6x + 3 But since the shaded region is above the line this becomes y > 6x + 3 Rewriting this becomes y - 6x > 3 Then if we multiply both sides by -1 and change the inequality: 6x - y < -3

    Ah ok. This line is vertical and crosses x = -7 So it is either x >= -7 or x <= -7. Which one do you think? Notice which side of the line the shaded region is at.

    The shaded region is to the left of -7, so that would indicate less than -7. Since the line is solid, it is less than or equal. x <= -7

    The line is solid and horizontal. The shaded region is below 0. What is your choice?

    The line is y = 0, but the shaded region is less than or equal to this. So y <= 0

    I think based on what you wrote down, it is C. It should be "y is less than or equal to 0"

    Which one do you think ? The line is y = -1 and it is solid. And the shaded region is above it.

    Nope. Remember that any time you see a horizontal line, it's going to be y. If it is a vertical line it's going to be x. The solid line is actually y = -1, and the region shaded is greater than or equal to it. So y >= -1 or D

    The non-profit organization you volunteer for is throwing a fundraiser cookout. You are in charge of buying the hamburgers, which cost $3 per pound and hotdogs, which cost $2 per pound. The meat budget you are given totals $600. The inequality 3x + 2y less than or greater to 600 represents the possible combinations of pounds of hamburgers (x) and hotdogs (y) you can buy. (see attached photo) Which of the following represents a solution to the inequality? A 200 pounds of hamburgers and 140 pounds of hotdogs B 150 pounds of hamburgers and 60 pounds of hotdogs C 100 pounds of hamburgers and 240 pounds of hotdogs D 240 pounds of hamburgers and 40 pounds of hotdogs

    If hamburgers are on the x axis and hotdogs on the y axis, the points become A: (200, 140) B: (150, 60) C: (100, 240) D: (240, 40) Now the question is, which one of these points is either on the line or inside the shaded region?
