# How do you graph the inequality #-2x+y>=-4#?

##### 1 Answer

**Step 1.** Dashed or Solid Line

This inequality says that

**Step 2.** Graph it, pretending it's an equation (not an inequality).

This is easier to solve if you pretend you have a linear equation instead of an inequality. That is, determine what you would graph if you were asked

But sure to graph it with a *solid* line (see **Step 1**).

graph{2x-4[-2,5,-5,5]}

**Step 3.** Pick points to decide which side to shade.

Going back to the original inequality,

**TRUE**, so shade on the side of the line containing the point

graph{(y-2x+4)>=0[-2,5,-5,5]}
