Just trying integers.

1: x can be 2 or 1. and y can still be >=0

2: x must be 3. Notice if you make x anything but 3 the inequality will not hold. Why? b/c if x were 2 then 1 would be less than -y, which at best could be 0. Doesnt work. Try making x a negative number and ur in more hot water than u were before.
