**Graphing Linear Inequalities in Two Variables**

Objective: Graph all of the solutions to a linear inequality NCSCOS: 1.02, 3.03, 4.01

2
Steps to Remember Rewrite the inequality so that it is in slope-intercept form y = mx + b Plot the y-intercept (b) Use the slope (m) to find other points on the line. Draw the line Solid if <= or >= Dotted if < or > Shade above or below the line Above if > or >= Below if < or <=

3
Example 1 Graph y > 2x -5 The equation is already in slope-intercept form. Start by plotting the y-intercept (b = -5)

4
**Example 1 (cont) Graph y > 2x -5**

Now use the slope to find other points on the line

5
**Example 1 (cont) Graph y > 2x -5**

Draw a dotted or solid line through the coordinates. This line will be dotted since the inequality is >

6
**Example 1 (cont) Graph y > 2x -5**

Shade above the line to show all of the coordinates that are solutions.

7
**Example 2 Graph 2x - 5y >=15 First, solve for y …**

-5y >= -2x + 15 y <= 2/5 x – 3 Now go through the steps of graphing.

8
Example 2 Graph 2x - 5y >=15 y <= 2/5 x – 3 Plot the y-intercept

9
**Example 2 Graph 2x - 5y >15 y <= 2/5 x – 3**

Use the slope to find other points

10
**Example 2 Graph 2x - 5y >15 y <= 2/5 x – 3**

Draw a solid line through the points.

11
Example 2 Graph 2x - 5y >15 y <= 2/5 x – 3 Shade below the line

12
**Special Example Graph x > 5**

Remember the graph will be a vertical line.

13
**Special Example Graph y< -2**

Remember the graph will be a horizontal line.
