    1. get the x and constants on one side and y on another for equation 1 \[x+2y<5\rightarrow 2y <-x+5\rightarrow y<(-1/2)x+(5/2)\]

    Now graph each function like you would for a line except dotted. The solution set is the shaded region beneath the first inequality x+2y<5 and beneath the inequality y<x.
