# How do you graph the inequality #5x+y>10#?

##### 2 Answers

Treat the inequality sign as an equal sign.

#### Explanation:

Now, just pick your values for x and solve for y!

Please see below.

#### Explanation:

Let us first consider the equality i.e.

or

Now, just pick values for

Let us pick

As

and joining points

graph{10-5x [-20, 20, -10, 10]}

But this is still not the graph for

Observe that this line divides Cartesian plane in three parts.

**Part 1** is the line itself and we know on the line

**Part 2** is the left hand side of the line. One point on the left is

**Part 3** is the right hand side of the line. One point to the right is

graph{5x+y>10 [-20, 20, -10, 10]}

Observe that line is **dashed** , which shows that points on the line do not form the solution.
