Draw a dotted line and shade above the line.
Explanation:
The first step is to change the inequality into an easier form.
From this we have the following:

The
#y# intercept is at the point#(0, 1)# 
The slope is
#2# 
The inequality sign is
#># so the graph will be a dotted line. 
The area above the line will be shaded
To draw the graph:

Find the
#x# intercept by putting#y=0#
#0= 2x+1#
#2x=1#
#x =1/2# 
Plot the point
#(1/2,0)# 
Plot the yintercept at the point
#(0,1)#
From the yintercept
Repeat this process at least 3 times to get a line of points.
Draw a dotted line and shade the area above the line.
