1 Section 3.1 - Graphing Systems of Linear Inequalities in two Variables A linear equation in two variables x and y, ax + by + c = 0 has a solution set that can be exhibited graphically as points on a straight line. In this section, we will show that there is also a simple graphical explanation for linear inequalities in two variables. Let’s begin with a specific example. Example 1 . Graph y < 2 x + 6 . The graph of a given linear inequality is one of the half-planes, which are obtained as a result of the division of xy-plane by the line that represents the equation. The graph of two (or more) linear inequalities is the intersection region of these half-planes. Example 2. Graph the following system of inequalities and determine their solution set: 4 1 2 + + y x y x
