# How do you solve and graph 1.5 < y + 1 ?

Sep 20, 2016

$y > 0.5$

#### Explanation:

treat it the same way you do an equation:

Subtract 1 from both sides

$\textcolor{b r o w n}{1.5 \textcolor{b l u e}{- 1} < y + 1 \textcolor{b l u e}{- 1}}$

$0.5 < y$

$y > 0.5$
'~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
As y is bigger than 0.5 it can not take on the value of 0.5. Thus the line is dotted.
