##### 1 Answer

Draw the line and decide which side to shade for the required region.

#### Explanation:

Treat the inequality as a straight line graph first .

Then shade the correct side of the line to indicate the solutions which are less than

You can use any method to draw the straight line - plot points or use the intercept/gradient method.

I will use the method of the

To find the

To find the

Now that you have both intercepts you can plot them and draw a solid line through them. This is the line

You could also write the equation as :

To decide which side of the line to shade, choose a test point.
