# How do you name one solution to: y >x^2 + 6x + 5?

Nov 2, 2016

Graph the inequality and choose a solution in the shaded area.

#### Explanation:

One method of naming one solution to $y > {x}^{2} + 6 x + 5$ is to graph the inequality and choose a solution in the shaded area.

Choose a solution in the shaded area, but NOT on the dotted line. The line is dotted because the inequality is greater than, instead of greater than or equal to.

One solution could be (-3,0).
