Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ITS a vertical line going uo in down Y is 0 so it has to be less

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2My bad! Again, my mistake. I meant to say: y = b (where b is some constant, like 5) is always a horizontal line. x = a (where a is some constant, like 5) is always a vertical line. So do we have a horizontal or vertical line?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i did not give her the answer. i ask her which she thought it was. and she said B.. soo.... I'd basically corrected her and gave her why i thought it was C and not B so.... THANKS :) @Astrophysics

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so.. I know what I am doing id ask her which one she thought it was, she said B and i told her their is a better answer and why,,, so reread before you comment!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2So @EmilyF03, do we have a horizontal or vertical line? After you've decided, pick any point in the region and substitute it into the equations you're left with. Of course, you'll only be able to sub in the x or y value of that point, depending on what equations you're subbing in to. Let's say you've narrowed it down to x < 2 and x > 2. Pick any point in the region, maybe the point (8,0). That's 8 across to the right and 0 up/down. Can you see how that point is in the region? Now, considering neither of your equations have a y in them, you can't sub in the y value anywhere, but you can sub in the x value. For x < 2, sub in x = 8. Is the equality true? For x > 2, sub in x = 8. Is the equality true?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2@EmilyF03 When you graph equation as such, thing of linear equations first, what is y = 2? and what is x = 2? y = 2, implies (0,2) right, so we do the following, which gives us the horizontal line. Similarly we can say x = 2, is (2,0) which gives us a vertical line. Now we just apply what we know of the signs, see if you can figure that out.dw:1436416152024:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2What I should really say is, y = 2, implies every point on the graph where there's (x,2)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2So for the line you have (1,2), (2,2)...etc, and similarly for x = 2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Close, but not quite x<2 think of it this way...this means x is anything less than 2, dw:1436416667745:dw this is what x<2 means, the left of the graph, notice how we get into negative numbers on that side.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes because you were given a vertical line at 2 which means that x = 2. Since your region was shaded to the right that means that all values greater than 2 .
