Recall, we have address linear inequalities so far with just one variable Solved them similar to equations, then graphed their solutions on a number line However, most instances, our inequalities will have 2-variables
When given two variables, we can solve similar to equations we have before, especially those in standard form – Ax + By = C
The different forms of linear inequalities with two variables may include Ax + By < C Ax + By ≤ C Ax + By > C Ax + By ≥ C
Verifying Solutions To check answers, we will pick points, or substitute certain values, and see if the statement is true – If true, good to go – If not, then points are not a solution
Example. Tell whether the following ordered pairs are a solution to the inequality 2x + y < 5. A) (1, 4) B) (2, -1) C) (0, 6)
Graphing Inequalities With inequalities, in one or two variables, we can graph their solution/solution sets in the Cartesian plane Unlike lines, however, when we graph inequalities, there are different rules for situations
Type of Line/Shading First thing is the type of line >, < = Use a dashed line (air underneath the symbol, air on the line) ≥, ≤ = Solid line (bar underneath the symbol, bar for the line)
Shading When graphing the inequalities, we will shade a particular region on the graph The shading depends on the sign orientation >, ≥ = Shade above the line OR to the right (for vertical lines) <, ≤ = Shade below the line OR to the left (for vertical lines)
Example. Graph the inequality x > -4 Type of line? Shading?
Example. Graph the inequality y ≤ -4 Type of line? Shading?
Example. Graph the inequality y ≥ 2 Type of line? Shading?
Example. Graph the inequality -x ≥ 6 Type of line? Shading?
