Graphing Linear Inequalities
Now that you've studied all of the examples for graphing linear inequalities, are you ready to try some on your own?
If you need to review the examples, click here now.
Before you begin, let's review a few things!
Rewrite the inequality in slope intercept form if needed.
Graph a dotted line if the inequality is greater than or less than.
Graph a solid line if the inequality is greater than or equal to or less than or equal to.
Substitute an ordered pair to determine which side of the line to shade. (0,0) is the easiest ordered pair to choose, if it is not on the line.
Shade the side of the line that contains all of the solutions to the inequality.
Check your work by substituting a point to determine whether or not it is a solution.
Ok... ready? Your turn!
