In the xy-plane, region R consists of all the points (x ,y) such that 2x + 3y <= 6. Is the point (r,s) in region R?

(1) 3r + 2s = 6
(2) r <= 3 and s <= 2

need to prove if 2r+3s<=6
(1) 3r + 2s = 6
not sufficient. for example take points (2,0), (0,3) and both yield different result
(2) r <= 3 and s <= 2
not sufficient. for example take points(3,2), (2,0) and both yield different result

combining
3r+2s=6
2r + 3s + (r-s) = 6
2r + 3s = 6 - (r-s) = 6 + (s-r) ==> as long as s<=r, the stmt is true

if r=3, s = -3/2 - true
if r=1, s = 3/2 - false
Not sufficient

this is hard questions from og 2016.

one way to solve is to pick up some specific number as is the case with the explanation is og.

this way confuse me because we have to choose many pairs of numbers.

I find out a way to solve. draw two lines . remember, for inequality, all the value of y which is above the line of equality satisfying the inequality.

this is hard at first but you will do it quickly after understanding the concept.
