 Question 248600: how do i graph the inequality y-x<6?Answer by solver91311(18785)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! Step 1: Graph the line but graph it with a dashed line instead of a solid line because the inequality is instead of . Step 2: Select any point that is NOT on the line. Since the line you just graphed does NOT pass through the origin, (0, 0) is an outstanding choice. Step 3: Substitute the coordinates of the point you selected in Step 2 into the original inequality. If the result is a true statement, shade in the half-plane containing the point you selected, using the graphed line as a boundary. If the result is a false statement, shade in the half-plane that does NOT contain the point you selected. The shaded area, NOT including the dashed boundary line, is your solution set. John
