# Graphing Linear Inequalities

Questions

1. Graph the region described by y > 2 − 3x.

2. Graph the region described by 2x − y ≥ 3.

3. Graph the region described by

4. Graph the region described by 3x + 4y − 8 ≤ 0.

Solutions

1. First, sketch y = 2−3x, and draw as a dashed line since
we don’t have the equality in the inequality.

You can sketch this using techniques from previous sections
(slope and y-intercept, or getting two points).

Test Point: (0, 0), colored red in diagram below.

y > 2 − 3x
(0) > 2 − 3(0)
0 > 2 FALSE, so shade side opposite the test point.

2. First, sketch 2x − y = 3, and draw as a solid line since
we have the equality in the inequality.

Test Point: (0, 0), colored red in diagram below.

x − y ≥ 3
2(0) − (0) ≥ 3
0 > 3 FALSE, so shade side opposite the test point.

3. First, sketch and draw as a dashed line since
we do not have the equality in the inequality.

Test Point: (−1,−1), colored red in diagram below.

TRUE, so shade side with the test point.

4. First, sketch 3x + 4y − 8 = 0, and draw as a solid line
since we have the equality in the inequality.

Test Point: (0, 0), colored red in diagram below.

3x + 4y − 8 ≤ 0
3(0) + 4(0) − 8 ≤ 0
−8 ≤  TRUE, so shade side with the test point.
