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

Draw the straight line $y = 2 - x$ that passes through (2, 0) and (0, 2). Shade the region above this line, excluding the line. Enter therein $x + y > 2$.
x + y > 2. So, $y > 2 - x$.
For any point (x, y) above the straight line $y = 2 - x$, $y > 2 - x$.
