    -4y + 17 <= 29 -17 -17 -4y<=12 /-4 <= /-4 y>=-3 when you divide a negative from both sides when solving for x or y the < or > flips into the opposite direction.

    To graph the inequality y >= -3, draw out a number line. Then plot a closed circle at -3. Then shade to the right of the closed circle. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- General Rules for graphing inequalities on a number line: If you have a < sign, then you make an open circle and you shade to the left of the open circle. If you have a > sign, then you make an open circle and you shade to the right of the open circle. If you have a <= sign, then you make a closed circle and you shade to the left of the closed circle. If you have a >= sign, then you make a closed circle and you shade to the right of the closed circle. Short Form of the Rules: < sign: open circle, shade to the left. > sign: open circle, shade to the right. <= sign: closed circle, shade to the left. >= sign: closed circle, shade to the right. Note: in any of the rules above, the variable is ALWAYS on the left side of the inequality sign.
