Which of the graphs best suits the inequality
$y$ > 1?
Solution:
As the inequality of the line is >, use dashed line to represent
y = 1.
The origin (0, 0) is not a solution and it lies below the line.
The solution of the inequality is the other half of the plane, which does not include the origin (0,0).
Therefore, Graph 2 best suits the inequality
y > 1.
Correct answer : (3)
2.
Which of the graphs best suits the inequality
$y$ < 1?
Solution:
Graph the corresponding equation
y = 1 with dashed line.
[Since the inequality is <.]
The point (0, 0) is a solution to the inequality and it lies below the line.
The graph of
y < 1 is the half plane below the graph of
y = 1.
Therefore, Graph 2 best suits the inequality
y < 1
Correct answer : (1)
3.
Which of the graphs best suits the inequality
$x$ - $y$ > - 1?
Solution:
x -
y > - 1
[Original inequality.]
x -
y = - 1
[Write corresponding equation].
y =
x + 1
[Subtract
x from each side].
The corresponding equation in slope-intercept form is
y =
x + 1.
The graph of the line has a slope of 1 and a
y-intercept of 1. Since the inequality is > use a dashed line.
The point (0, 0) satisfies the inequality. So, the solution is the half of the plane that includes the point (0, 0).
Therefore, graph 1 best suits the inequality
x -
y > - 1.
Correct answer : (1)
4.
Which of the following ordered pairs is not a solution of the inequality 3$x$ - 4$y$ > -4?

[Write original inequality.]
3(4) - 4(3) > -4
[Replace x with 4 and y with 3.]
0 > -4, which is true.
[Simplify.]
So, the ordered pair (4, 3) is a solution.
3x - 4y > -4
[Write original inequality.]
3(7) - 4(3) > -4
[Replace x with 7 and y with 3.]
9 > -4, which is true.
[Simplify.]
So, the ordered pair (7, 3) is a solution.

5.
Choose the ordered pair that is not the solution of the inequality whose graph is shown.
Solution:
The y-intercept of the line is - 4 and the slope is 1.
The equation of the line in slope-intercept form is y = x - 4.
[Substitute m = 1 and b = - 4 in the equation y = mx + b.]
As the boundary line is a dashed line and the region below the line is shaded, the inequality should be y < x - 4.
y < x - 4
[Write original inequality.]
- 4 < 2 - 4
[Replace x with 2 and y with - 4.]
- 4 < - 2, which is true.
[Simplify.]
So, the ordered pair (2, - 4) is a solution.
y < x - 4
[Write original inequality.]
- 2 < 4 - 4
[Replace x with 4 and y with - 2.]
- 2 < 0, which is true.
[Simplify.]
So, the ordered pair (4, - 2) is a solution.
y < x - 4
[Write original inequality.]
- 4 < 4 - 4
[Replace x with 4 and y with - 4.]
- 4 < 0, which is true.
[Simplify.]
So, the ordered pair (4, - 4) is a solution.
y < x - 4
[Write original inequality.]
2 < - 2 - 4
[Replace x with - 2 and y with 2.]
2 < - 6, which is not true.
[Simplify.]
So, the ordered pair (- 2, 2) is not a solution.
Therefore, (- 2, 2) is not a solution for the inequality of the graph shown.
Correct answer : (4)
6.
Which of the following ordered pairs is not a solution of the inequality $x$ - $\frac{y}{5}$ > 6?
Solution:
x - y5 > 6
[Original inequality.]
3 - 55 > 6
[Replace x with 3 and y with 5.]
2 > 6, which is not true.
[Simplify.]
So, the ordered pair (3, 5) is not a solution.
x - y5 > 6
[Original inequality.]
8 - (- 55) > 6
[Replace x with 8 and y with - 5.]
9 > 6, which is true.
[Simplify.]
So, the ordered pair (8, - 5) is a solution.
x - y5 > 6
[Original inequality.]
11 - (05) > 6
[Replace x with 11 and y with 0.]
11 > 6, which is true.
[Simplify.]
So, the ordered pair (11, 0) is a solution.
x - y5 > 6
[Original inequality.]
0 - (- 405) > 6
[Replace x with 0 and y with - 40.]
8 > 6, which is true.

5x - 3y < 0
5(2) - 3(- 3) < 0
[Replace x with 2 and y with - 3.]
19 < 0, which is false.
