This week we learned how to graph inequalities with two variables. These inequalities are essentially forms of the equation y=mx+b, used to graph lines. The same idea can be applied to graphing the inequalities.

However depending on the inequality the line will either be broken or solid.

solid line = $\leq$ or $\geq$

broken line = $>$ or $<$

using the same idea as y=mx+b, we can find the slope, and the y-intercept.

“m” represents our slope, if it’s a whole number it can be read as $\frac{n}{1}$ with “n” being your rise(y), and 1 being your run(x).

For instance: If you were to graph $y>x+2$, your y-intercept would be 2, and your slope would be $\frac{1}{1}$

It would look like this:

The area shaded, is figured out by testing x and y coordinates in your equation, until the equation is made true through the coordinates chosen.
