Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[1/3y1/2x>2\] This is an inequality rather than just a line, but you can treat it as a regular linear equation of form y=mx+b to find the slope and yintercept. First add 1/2x to each side of the inequality to isolate the y variable, obtaining \[1/3y>1/2x+2\] Then, multiply both sides by 3 to obtain \[3*1/3y>3*(1/2x+2)\] or \[y>3/2x+6\] This is form y>mx+b, where slope is m and yintercept is b. So the slope is 3/2 and the yintercept is 6.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0on a graph where would the shaded region be? and would it be a solid or dotted line?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Since it is greater than, it would be above the line (think of it as all the lines above the line y=3/2x+6, but not including y=3/2x+6). And the line would be dotted because it is not greater than or equal to, just greater than.
