# How do you graph y < -2x?

All the region to the left of line y=−2x, not including points on the line y=−2x, is the solution graph for y<−2x.
For drawing a graph of y<−2x, first draw a graph of y=−2x, which is a straight line passing through $\left(0 , 0\right)$, $\left(7 , - 14\right)$ and $\left(- 7 , 14\right)$ as they satisfy the equality $y = - 2 x$.
As y<−2x (not equal but less than), obviously this line does not include points satisfying y<−2x. However, all the points to the left of it satisfy the inequality.
Hence, all the region to the left of line y=−2x, not including points on the line y=−2x, is the solution graph for y<−2x.
