 Question 84557: Graph the inequality. y is greater than or equal to 1 Answer by bucky(2189)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!If you graph the line y = 1, you find that it is a horizontal line through the point +1 on the y-axis. You can think of it this way, no matter what the value of x is, the corresponding value of y is 1. Therefore, the following points are on the graph: (-10,1), (0,1), (7,1) and so on. This shows the graph: . . The answer set you are looking for is where y has a value that is greater than or equal to the values represented by the graphed line. Therefore, shade in the entire region above the graphed line and include the line itself in the shaded area. All the points in the shaded area will have a y-value that is equal to or greater than +1. So all the points in the shaded area above and including the graphed line are in the solution set for this problem. . Hope this helps you to visualize what is going on with this problem and what the solution set means.
