Above and Below the Line Sometimes we are interested in the regions above and below the line Called a linear inequality Like: 2x + y < 4 Graph the line It divides the plane into 3 parts (above, below, and the line itself)
Like: 2x + y < 4 Test a point on each side to decide which side gives us the solution (0,0) is not on the line, so let’s use it (0,0) A: Satisfies Ineq. B: Does not satisfy

Get a whole region that is a solution Whether line itself is included depends on <, >, , For 2x + y < 4 A: use a solid line B: use a dashed line C: doesn’t really matter
So for 2x + y < 4

Other Direction Might be given the region shaded either above or below a line Can find equation of line as in chapter 2 Line is A: y = 1 + x B: y = 2 + x C: y = 1 + 2x D: y = 1 + ½x
Test a point on the shaded side to decide which direction the inequality should go Inequality is A: y = 1 + 2x B: y > 1 + 2x C: y < 1 + 2x D: y ≤ 1 + 2x E. y ≥ 1 + 2x
