Graphing Linear Inequalities in Two Variables

Graphing Inequalities

To graph inequalities you will get y by itself and graph the line as usual. To take care of the inequality part,

you do the following:

For and draw a solid line

For < and > draw a dotted line

Pick a point on either side of the line and plug it into the inequality

o If the result is true, than shade on the same side as the point chosen

o If the result is false, shade on the opposite side

Example : Graph x + y < 2.

First solve for y:

x + y < 2

-x -x

y < -x + 2

Then graph the line. The slope is -1 and the y- intercept is (0, 2). Use a dotted line because there is no equal-to.

Next, pick a point on either side of the line, like (0, 0), to see which side to shade. If the point (0, 0) is a solution then, shade on that side of the line. Otherwise, shade on the opposite side. (0) + (0) < 2 0 < 2 Is this true? Yes, the shading is on the same side as (0, 0).

Graphing - Point-Slope Form

Objective: Give the equation of a line with a known slope and point.

The slope-intercept form has the advantage of being simple to remember and use, however, it has one major disadvantage: we must know the y-intercept in order to use it! Generally we do not know the y-intercept, we only know one or more points (that are not the y-intercept). In these cases we can’t use the slope inter- cept equation, so we will use a different more flexible formula. If we let the slope of an equation be m, and a specific point on the line be (x1, y1), and any other point on the line be (x, y). We can use the slope formula to make a second equa- tion.

Example 139.

m, (x1, y1), (x, y) Recall slope formula y2− y1 x2−x1

=m Plug in values

y − y1 x−x1

=m Multiply both sides by (x−x1) y − y1 =m(x−x1) Our Solution

If we know the slope, m of an equation and any point on the line (x1, y1) we can easily plug these values into the equation above which will be called the point- slope formula.

Point− Slope Formula: y − y1 = m(x − x1)

Example 140.

Write the equation of the line through the point (3,− 4) with a slope of 3 5 .

y − y1 = m(x− x1) Plug values into point− slope formula y − (− 4)= 3

5 (x− 3) Simplify signs

y + 4= 3

5 (x− 3) Our Solution

Often, we will prefer final answers be written in slope intercept form. If the direc-

107

tions ask for the answer in slope-intercept form we will simply distribute the slope, then solve for y.

Example 141.

Write the equation of the line through the point ( − 6, 2) with a slope of − 2 3 in

slope-intercept form.

y − y1 = m(x− x1) Plug values into point− slope formula y − 2=− 2

3 (x− (− 6)) Simplify signs

y − 2 =− 2 3 (x + 6) Distribute slope

y − 2=− 2 3 x− 4 Solve for y

+ 2 + 2

y =− 2 3 x− 2 Our Solution

An important thing to observe about the point slope formula is that the operation between the x’s and y’s is subtraction. This means when you simplify the signs you will have the opposite of the numbers in the point. We need to be very careful with signs as we use the point-slope formula.

In order to find the equation of a line we will always need to know the slope. If we don’t know the slope to begin with we will have to do some work to find it first before we can get an equation.

Example 142.

Find the equation of the line through the points (− 2, 5) and (4,− 3).

m = y2− y1 x2−x1

First wemust find the slope

m = − 3− 5

Plug values in slope formula and evaluate

y − y1 =m(x−x1) With slope and either point,use point− slope formula y − 5=− 4

3 (x− (− 2)) Simplify signs

y − 5=− 4 3 (x +2) Our Solution

Example 143.

=− 3 Plug values in slope formula and evaluate

y − y1 = m(x−x1) With slope and either point, point− slope formula y − 4=− 3(x− (− 3)) Simplify signs

y − 4=− 3(x + 3) Distribute slope y − 4=− 3x− 9 Solve for y

+4 + 4 Add 4 to both sides

y =− 3x− 5 Our Solution

Our Solution

World View Note: The city of Konigsberg (now Kaliningrad, Russia) had a river that flowed through the city breaking it into several parts. There were 7 bridges that connected the parts of the city. In 1735 Leonhard Euler considered the question of whether it was possible to cross each bridge exactly once and only once. It turned out that this problem was impossible, but the work laid the foun- dation of what would become graph theory.

Graphing - Parallel and Perpendicular Lines

Objective: Identify the equation of a line given a parallel or perpendic- ular line.

There is an interesting connection between the slope of lines that are parallel and the slope of lines that are perpendicular (meet at a right angle). This is shown in the following example.

Example 145.
