# How do you graph the inequality y<-2x+5?

Oct 13, 2015

The graph will be a dashed straight line, with shading below the line.

#### Explanation:

$y < - 2 x + 5$

Determine 2 points by substituting values for $x$ and solve for $y$.

$x = - 2 ,$ $y = 9$
$x = 0 ,$ $y = 5$

Plot the points and draw a dashed straight line through the points to indicate that the points are not on the line. Then shade the area below the line.
