# How do you graph the inequality on a coordinate plane 5x-2y>= -10?

Oct 20, 2017

See below for explanation

#### Explanation:

If you are able to graph a regular linear equation, then simply transpose the equation so that y is the subject.

$- 2 y \ge - 10 - 5 x$
$y \le 5 - \frac{5}{2} x$

Remember that when you divide by a negative number you have the change the direction of the inequality sign

Now graph the function $y = 5 - \frac{5}{2} x$ and then shade the area below the line to indicate a less than.
