    you don't need to, just graph the line and remember you are looking at the region less than or equal to it

    (-5, 2) is 2 <= -5 - 5 true? is 2 >= --5 - 4 true? (5, -2) is -2 <= 5 - 5 true? is -2 >= -5 - 4 true? (-5, -2) is -2 <= -5 - 5 true? is -2 >= --5 - 4 true? (5, 2) is 2 <= 5 - 5 true? is 2 >= -5 - 4 true?
