## How do you graph inequalities on a coordinate plane?

There are three steps:

- Rearrange the equation so “y” is on the left and everything else on the right.
- Plot the “y=” line (make it a solid line for y≤ or y≥, and a dashed line for y< or y>)
- Shade above the line for a “greater than” (y> or y≥) or below the line for a “less than” (y< or y≤).

## How do you find the inequality of a graph?

Plug your slope and a point into the formula y = mx + B, in which “m” is the slope, (x, y) is a point on the line and “b” is the y-intercept, to find the equation governing the inequality line. Plugging in (0, 0), you obtain 0 = 0 + b, so b = 0. Rewriting the equation, you obtain y = x/2.

## How do you graph linear equations in one coordinate plane?

The x-intercept is found by finding the value of x when y = 0, (x, 0), and the y-intercept is found by finding the value of y when x = 0, (0, y). Before you can graph a linear equation in its standard form you first have to solve the equation for y. From here you can graph the equation as we did in the example above.

## How do you calculate an inequality?

Plug your slope and a point into the formula y = mx + B, in which “m” is the slope, (x, y) is a point on the line and “b” is the y-intercept, to find the equation governing the inequality line. Plugging in (0, 0), you obtain 0 = 0 + b, so b = 0. Rewriting the equation, you obtain y = x/2.

## How do you solve linear inequalities?

To solve a linear inequality, you have to find all the combinations of x and y that make the inequality true. You can solve linear inequalities using algebra or by graphing. To solve a linear inequality (or any equation), you have to find all the combinations of x and y that make that equation true.

## How do you graph a coordinate plane?

Explanation: To graph points on a coordinate plane, we must be aware that points or coordinates rather are written in the form (x,y) where x is the position on the x -axis and y is the position on the y -axis. To graph a point, we must first locate its position on the x-axis, then do the same for y-axis and find where the two points meet.
