# How do you graph the inequality 2x + y > -2?

Draw the straight line $2 x + y = - 2$ that passes through $\left(- 1 , 0\right) , \left(0 , - 2\right)$. Shade the region above this line and enter therein $2 x + y = - 2$, The shaded region is the graph for the inequality.
$y = - 2 x - 2$ is the non-inclusive boundary line for the graph. For any point ( x, y ) above this line, $2 x + y > - 2$,
