 Question 32099: My question is this: 2y-x<8 I have turned it around to be -x+2y=8 and found the first set of ordered pair to help graph. x,0,y,4 But my book says the next ordered pair is -8x and 4y. I would like to know why? How did they get the second pair? I know that because of < it is a slashed line when you graph. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
