Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Determine whether your inequality states that y is less than or greater than the rest of the equation. If it is less than, you will shade underneath your line. If it is greater than, you will shade above your line. For example, y<2x4 states that y is less than the rest of the equation, so this inequality is shaded underneath the graphed line.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0etermine whether your graph requires a solid or dashed line and retrace it over your lightly graphed line. Solid lines are used to denote inequalities that include the line, while dashed lines indicate that the line is not part of the solution. If your inequality uses a greaterthanorequalto sign, or a lessthanorequalto sign, it requires a solid line. Greaterthan or lessthan signs require dashed lines. For example, y<2x4 requires a dashed line.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0x < y is the same as y > x to graph y > x, you would do the following step 1) graph the equation y = x step 2) make this line a dashed line step 3) shade above this dashed line (since there's a > sign in y > x)
