 Question 330999: if you are graphing what is the difference between graphing and equation and graphing an inequality?Answer by neatmath(300)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!When you graph an equation or function, you will end up with a line, whether it is curved or straight. When you graph an inequality, you will end up with a shaded region depicting an entire area of possible solutions. For example, it is easy to graph the equation y=x It is just a straight line crossing through the origin, where each y value on the line is the same as the x value. However, if you graph the inequality y>x you will end up with an entire shaded region above the line y=x where every y value is greater than any x value. I hope this helps!
