# EXAMPLE 2 Graph linear inequalities with one variable

EXAMPLE 2 Graph linear inequalities with one variable Graph (a) y < – 3 and (b) x < 2 in a coordinate plane. a. Graph the boundary line y = – 3. Use a solid line because the inequality symbol is <. Test the point (0, 0). Because (0, 0) is not a solution of the inequality, shade the halfplane that does not contain (0, 0).

EXAMPLE 2 b. Graph linear inequalities with one variable Graph the boundary line x = 2. Use a dashed line because the inequality symbol is <. Test the point (0, 0). Because (0, 0) is a solution of the inequality, shade the halfplane that does not contains (0, 0).

EXAMPLE 3 Graph linear inequalities with two variables Graph (a) y > – 2 x and (b) 5 x – 2 y ≤ – 4 in a coordinate plane. a. Graph the boundary line y = – 2 x. Use a dashed line because the inequality symbol is >. Test the point (1, 1). Because (1, 1) is a solution of the inequality, shade the halfplane that contains (1, 1).

EXAMPLE 3 b. Graph linear inequalities with two variables Graph the boundary line 5 x – 2 y = – 4. Use a solid line because the inequality symbol is <. Test the point (0, 0). Because (0, 0) is not a solution of the inequality, shade the half-plane that does not contain (0, 0).

Test the point (0, 0). Because (0, 0) is a solution of the inequality, shade the half- plane that contains (0, 0).
