How do you solve this linear inequality #x-y>4#?
Apr 9, 2015
I'm uncertain what format you want your "solution" in.
You could re-write the inequality
Maybe drawing a graph would be one way of expressing the solution.
To do this
- Draw the line for the equation
#y = x-4#(to do this draw a straight line through the intercept points #(0,-4)#and #(4,0)#
- Shade the area below and to the left of your line as the solution area (since y values below this line are less than corresponding values on the line).
