    Dear Jakk, Substitute the given answers into both inequalities. A solution would make both inequalities true.

    For example, using the answer to (a): 3(3) - 4(-3)>7 9+12>7, so this point works in the first inequality. Now try it in the secone inequality.

    so it would be like 3 < 2(-3) + 3 3<-6+3 right ?

    Nope. For answer (a) x = 3 and y=-3. You substituted incorrectly.

    Great! Looks like you found your solution. Answer (a) makes both inequalities true. I'm signing off. Good luck with your math assignment.
