# How do you graph the inequality y > x?

$y > x$ is a graph representing all values of $y$ that are above the graph $y = x$
so we graph $y = x$ like normal but use a dashed line because it is $y > x$ not $y \ge x$ then we shade in all values <b>greater</b> then the line $y = x$ or in other words all values above the line.
Quick tip: I like to think the $>$ symbol points up so it tells me to shade all values above the line and the $<$ points down so I shade below the line.
