# How do you graph #y>2/3x-1# on the coordinate plane?

##### 1 Answer

graph{y>2/3x-1 [-10, 10, -5, 5]}

#### Explanation:

First, graph a line with the equation

graph{2/3x-1 [-10, 10, -5, 5]}

However, we are graphing an inequality so we're gonna have to shade either the area above the line or below the line. First, let's look at the inequality symbols.

If the inequality includes **equal to**, then the line will be solid. If not, then the line will be dotted. Since the inequality **equal to**, the line will be dotted.

The direction of the inequality sign matters too. If it's greater than, then the top area will be shaded. If it's less than, then the bottom area will be shaded. Since the inequality **greater than**, the top area will be shaded.
