Answer:

#color(blue)((1/3)x+4 > y >= -x+1#

Explanation:

Given:

We are given the System of Inequalities:

#color(brown)(y < (1/3)x+4 # and

#color(brown)(y >= (-x)+1#

#color(green)(Step.1#

#color(brown)(y < (1/3)x+4 # - Image of the graph created using GeoGebra

#color(green)(Step.2#

#color(brown)(y >= (-x)+1# - Image of the graph created using GeoGebra

#color(green)(Step.3#

#color(brown)(y < (1/3)x+4 # and #color(brown)(y >= (-x)+1# - Image of the combined graphs created using GeoGebra

If you observe closely, you will find the solution in a visual form.

The solution to the system of inequalities is the darker shaded region, which is the overlap of the two individual regions.

Note:

If the inequality is < or >, graph of the equation has a dotted line.

If the inequality is ≤ or ≥, graph of the equation has a solid line.

This line divides the xy- plane into two regions: a region that satisfies the inequality, and a region that does not.
