We can make this look like the linear equation

The inequality we start with is:

#3x-y < 2#

Add

#3x < 2+y#

Subtract

#3x-2 < y#

Flip the order of the equation:

#y > 3x-2#

So, we graph the line *greater* than this, shade above the line. We leave the line

The line

graph{3x-2 [-5, 5, -20, 20]}

The inequality

graph{y>3x-2 [-5, 5, -20, 20]}
