# How do you graph the inequality #y>x - 3# on a coordinate plane.?

##### 1 Answer

Draw the line as usual. Decide which side is wanted and shade it.

Whether the points on the line are included in the solution or not depends on whether the sign is

#### Explanation:

An inequality on a coordinate plane consists of a boundary line and an area in which every point is a possible solution.

If the inequality has a

If the inequality just has a

In this case the equation of the boundary line is

This line has a slope of 1 and a y-intercept = -3.

The x-intercept is +3. It will be a broken/dashed/dotted line.

To determine which side of the line is the wanted and which is the unwanted region, choose a sample point.

In this case, the wanted region is shaded.
