Graphing 2 Variable Inequalities - Concept

Concept Concept (1)

Just like equations, sometimes we have two variables in an inequality. Graphing inequalities with two variables involves shading a region above or below the line to indicate all the possible solutions to the inequality. When graphing inequalities with two variables, we use some of the same techniques used when graphing lines to find the border of our shaded region.
