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

Mar 23, 2016

Graph the line $y = - 2 x + 5$. This line passes through (0, 5) and ($\left(\frac{5}{2} , 0\right)$. Shade the region above this line. Enter $y > - 2 x + 5$ therein.

Explanation:

For (x, y) on this line, $y = - 2 x + 5$.

For points above this line (in the positive y-direction), $y > - 2 x + 5$.

For points below this line (in the negative y-direction), $y < - 2 x + 5$.
