# How do you graph y<0.75x-5 on the coordinate plane?

Jul 19, 2017

Refer to the explanation.

#### Explanation:

Graph:

$y < 0.75 x - 5$

Set values for $x$ and solve for $y$.

If $x = 0 ,$ then $y = - 5$

Point: $\left(0 , - 5\right)$

If $x = 2 ,$ then $y = - 3.5$

Point: $\left(2 , 3.5\right)$

If $x = 4 ,$ then $y = - 2$

Plot the points and draw a dashed line through the points to indicate that the line is not part of the graph. Then shade the area below the graph to indicate the inequality.

graph{y<0.75x-5 [-16.02, 16.01, -8.01, 8.01]}
