Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Well, one way to see this more easily is to get it into something like y=mx+b form so you will know a little about the line. Then test some.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so you have to play around with it correct?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3I'll do the simple example, y<x+1. You could be given that as: yx<1 And yes, it is manipulating it to get it into the form where it is clear what the intercept point is.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3On y<x+1 The intercept is 1. So when x is 0, y is 1... BUT, it is an inequality. That means y is not really 1. It is less than 1 in this case. So that tells me that wherever the line is, the shading for the y values must be below the line. The line would also be dashed because it is is < and not \(\le\).

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so is there any chance we can start you know process of elimination or we cant?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Once you have it in that form, it is pretty easy to tell if it will be above or below. Just need to be careful if you do any division by a negative because that changes < into > or > into <.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3\(\ge\) and \(\le\) are solid lines. > and < are dashed lines. That alone elimiantes 2 answers.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Yah. 4x 2y > 20 uses >. Even if it flips direction it would be <. So it must be dashed. When you get it into y=mx+b form you know the other part: y>mx+b means y is greater (above) the line y<mx+b means y is lesser (below) the line

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Yes, I was gone... the joys of moderaton. 4x 2y > 20 2y > 4x + 20 y < 2x  10 So yes, below the line.
