Plot the line corresponding to the equality form of the constraint. (Pick two points on the line and join them) 2. Check which side of the line contains the feasible solutions. You can randomly pick a point, say the origin (0,0), and check if the point satisfies the inequality. If yes, the side which contains this point is the feasible solution side. If no, then the side which does not contain this point is the feasible solution side. 8 • Example 2: Graph Constraints § Graph the region of points satisfying 4x1 - x2 > 12 : 5 4 3 2 1 1 2 3 4 5 6 x 2 x1 9...
