 Question 598672: I'm trying to help my son but I need a little help also, anything would be appreciated, shown in a way I can understand Please. Solve the system of two linear inequalities graphically. 2y is less than -5x-10 5y is equal to or greater than 4x + 20 step one# graph the first inequality: 2y is less than -5x -10 step two# graph the second inequality: 5y is equal to or greater than 4x + 20 step 3# indicate the region that satisfies both inequalities. Answer by stanbon(57962)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Solve the system of two linear inequalities graphically. 2y is less than -5x-10 5y is equal to or greater than 4x + 20 step one# graph the first inequality: 2y is less than -5x -10 2y < -5x-10 y < (-5/2)x - 5 ---- 1st: Graph the boundary as a dashed line: Use points (0,-5) and (2,-10) Draw a dashed line thru them 2nd: Shade the half-plane BELOW the boundary line. --------------------------------------------------------- step two# graph the second inequality: 5y is equal to or greater than 4x + 20 5y >= 4x+20 y >= (4/5)x + 4 1st: Graph the boundary as a solid line: Use points (0,4) and (5,8) Draw a solid line thru them. 2nd: Shade the half-plane ABOVE the boundary line ---- step 3# indicate the region that satisfies both inequalities. The solution is ALL of the points that are in both graphs. ======================================== ======================= Cheers, Stan H.
