can u help me out with this, in cartesian coordiates?
if x and y are +ve nos. is x>y?
1) x+yx^2/2.
when a quadratic eqn is given, how does one solve using cartesian coordinates?

good question. you just need to draw three graphs.
First we have only +ve x and y, so we need to consider Q1 only.

target area is x > y means, area right of line x=y

st1. the small triangular area between lina x+y =1, x axis and y axis ...not suff
st2 : area above the graph y = (x^2)/2 ... not suff

combine : area within the small triangle mentioned above but above the graph ... still we can have a point on both sides of line x=y.. not suff

Except that you did not plot y=x^2/2 (which is not affine by part), you are right
