Put the equations into y=mx+b form to graph!
Graphing Review
Graph each line.
a) y = x + 2
b)
x – 2y = 6
Graphing a Linear Inequality
Graphing a linear inequality is very
similar to graphing a linear
equation.
Graphing Inequalities
Where do you think the points that are y > x + 2 are located?
Where do you think the points that are y < x + 2 are located?
Graphing Inequalities
The line is the boundary of the two regions. The blue region is the
“greater than” (>) area and the yellow region is the “less than” (<)
area.
YOU WERE
RIGHT!!
Graphing Inequalities
When the line that represents y = x + 2 is solid, not dashed, it means
that the points on the line are included in the inequality. So we would
state that the blue are can be represented by
y  x + 2. And, the yellow could
be represented by y  x + 2.
Graphing Inequalities
When the line that represents y = x + 2 is dashed, it means that the
points on the line are not included in the inequality. So we would
state that the blue are can be represented by y > x + 2.
And, the yellow could be
represented by y < x + 2.
• What does it mean to
be a point in the
solution of an
inequality?
– A point in the shaded
area of the solution set
that fits the inequality
• Name 1 point in the
solution set
• Name 1 point NOT in
the solution set
Steps to Graphing Linear Inequalities
1. Change the inequality into slope-intercept form,
y = mx + b. Graph the equation.
2. If > or < then the line should be dashed.
If > or < then the line should be solid.
3. If y > mx+b or y > mx+b, shade above the line.
If y < mx+b or y < mx+b, shade below the line.
4. To check that the shading is correct, pick a point in
the area and plug it into the inequality
–
–
If TRUE, you shaded correct
If FALSE, you shaded incorrectly

Surfing with Inequalities
• Will the inequality “surf” splash
over our surfer?
• Step 1: Graph line
• Step 2: Dashed or solid line?
• Step 3: Shade above or below
line?
• Step 4: Verify a point
y ≥ 2x
Using What We Know
Sketch a graph of x + y < 3
Step 1: Put into
slope intercept form
y <-x + 3
Step 2: Graph the
line y = -x + 3

Graphing an Inequality in Two Variables
Graph x < 2
Step 1: Start by graphing the line x = 2
Now what points
would give you less
than 2?
Since it has to be x < 2
we shade everything to
the left of the line.

Absent Student Letter
• Write a letter to an absent student explaining
what an inequality is and how to graph a
system of inequalities?
The solution to a system of Equations is the POINT of INTERSECTION
Graphing Review
Use a graph to solve each system of equations.
a) y = x + 1 and y = -x + 3
b)
2x – y = 6 and y = x - 2
