Hey,

I was practicing some of the inequalities questions and saw a lot of you who are using graphical approach to solve inequlity are struggling with which region to shade(or which region is green/true) ..

i just checked this post by nach >

quick-way-to-graph-inequalities-76255.html and the way described there is awfully long.

i don't know how to add attachments so will be just writing and using the examples nach used.

1. 3x+4y<3:

take origin as reference .. point ... put it in the above inequality i.e. x=0 and y=0, it'll give you 0<3 which is true hence we'll shade the are which contains origin

2. -2x+5y<-3

take origin as reference and you'll get 0<-3 which is not true .. hence shade the area which does not contain origin .. its that simple ..

refer

quick-way-to-graph-inequalities-76255.html for graphical representation of above examples

if a line passes through origin, take 0,1 or 1,0 or -1,0 or 0,-1 as reference point which ever you feel will get you a result faster ..

Hope i helped someone
