Slide 3
Graphing Linear Inequalities The graph of a linear inequality
is a region of the coordinate plane that is bounded by a line. This
region represents the SOLUTION to the inequality.
Slide 4
A linear inequality is an inequality in two variables whose
graph is a region of the coordinate plane that is bounded by a
line.
Slide 5
Graph the following inequality: x > 2 Boundary is:x = 2 We
shaded at the right of the line because x is more than 2. The line
is dashed because it is not equal or less than x, so the line which
is the boundary is not included in the solution.
Slide 6
Graph the following inequality: y < 6 Boundary: y = 0x + 6m=
0y- intercept = (0,6) We shaded below the line because y is less
than 6. The line is dashed because it is not equal or less than y,
so the line which is the boundary is not included in the
solution.
Slide 7
Example
Slide 8
1.The boundary line is dashed.
Slide 9
2.Substitute (0, 0) into the inequality to decide where to
shade. So the graph is shaded away from (0, 0).
Slide 10
Slide 11
Graph the following inequality: 4x + 2y < 10 Solve for y y
< -2x + 5 Boundary is: y = -2x + 5m= -2 y- intercept = (0,5) We
shaded below the line because y is less than the expression -2x +
5. The line is dashed because it is not equal or less than y, so
the line which is the boundary is not included.
Slide 12
Graph the following inequality: -9x + 3y< 3 Solve for y y
< 3x + 1 Boundary is: y = 3x + 1 m= 3y- intercept = (0, 1) We
shaded below the line because y is less than the expression 3x +1.
The line is dashed because it is not equal or less than y, so the
line which is the boundary is not included.
Slide 13
Graph the following inequality: y 2 > (x 4) Solve for y y
> x 3 Boundary is: y = x 3 m = y-intercept = (0, -3) We shaded
above because y is greater or equal than the expression and the
line is continuous because the word equal in greater or equal
indicates that the boundary is included in the solution.

Slide 19
Graph the following absolute value equation: y = |x| For x 0 y
= -x y = x Now lets shift it two units up: y = |x| + 2 Now lets
shift it three units to the right: y = |x - 3| + 2 Now lets graph
it upside down y = |x-3| + 2 Now lets make it skinner y = 6|x-3| +

Slide 20
So, thats how the different parameters in an absolute value
equation affect our graph. Now lets graph absolute value
inequalities.
Slide 21
Absolute Value Inequalities Graph the absolute value function
then shade above OR below Solid liney Dashed liney Shade above
y>, y> Shade belowy
Absolute Value Inequalities Graph y + 1 < -2|x + 2| -y <
-2|x + 2| - 1 y > 2|x + 2| + 1 -y so CHANGE the direction of the
inequality
Slide 28
Absolute Value Inequalities y > 2|x + 2| + 1 Vertex = (-2,
1) Slope = 2 Solid line Shade above
Slide 29
Absolute Value Inequalities y > 2|x + 2| + 1
Slide 30
Absolute Value Inequalities y > 2|x + 2| + 1
Slide 31
Absolute Value Inequalities y > 2|x + 2| + 1
Slide 32
Absolute Value Inequalities y > 2|x + 2| + 1
Slide 33
Absolute Value Inequalities Write an equation for the graph
below.
Slide 34
Graph the following inequality: y > |x| Finding the
boundary: For x 0 y = -x y = x There are two regions: Testing point
(0,2) 2 > | 0| 2 > 0 true Therefore, the region where (0,2)
lies is the solution region and we shade it..
Slide 35
Finding the boundary: For x + 1 0 y = -(x+1) 3 y = x+1 3 y = -
x 1 -3y = - x 4 y = x 2 There are two regions: Testing point (0,0)
0 < | 0+1| 3 0 < -2 false So the region where (0,0) lies is
not in the solution region, therefore we shade the region below.
Graph the following inequality: y < |x+1| 3.
Slide 36
Steps: 1.Decide if the boundary graph is solid or dashed.
2.Graph the absolute value function as the boundary. 3.Use the
point (0, 0), if it is not on the boundary graph, to decide how to
shade.
