graph{3x-4y=12 [-20.31, 20.31, -10.15, 15]}
Draw a graph for the equation
$3 x - 4 y = 12$
We know from inspection of the expression that it is a straight line. It will look like line drawn in the graph above.

We are required to draw
$3 x - 4 y > 12$

The inequality represents all the points located in the area on the left hand side of the line drawn above. It looks like graph below where the area has been indicated by shadowing it.

graph{3x-4y>12 [-20.31, 20.31, -10.15, 15]}
