    Did you graph them and found the solution region?

    find the region below or on the line y=x-5 and above or on the line y=-x-4

    I'm in a library, so I don't have graphing paper, and I have no clue how to use a graphing calculator. :/

    or go to https://www.desmos.com/calculator and type in the two equations (copy and paste works too)

    How do I make a less than or equal too sign on the graphing calculator?

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

    In my calculator click on the square having equal to after the y1 or y2

    in desmos, enter the less than sign then the equals sign <= or >=

    i woulda just plugged in the 4 points to see what made true results

    (-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?

    it is nice to know that other stuff, but it takes way to much time when taking a test.

    It's -5, -2, right?

    (-5, -2) -2 <= 0 true -2 >= 1 false not that one

    dunno, lets try another one (5, -2) -2 <= 5 - 5 -2 <= 0 true -2 >= -5 - 4 -2 >= -9 true that fits nicely
