    Hello, andyboy179!

    i need to shade inequalities for these: . \begin{Bmatrix}(1) & y \:>\:2x+1 \\ (2) & y \:<\:x \\ (3) & y \:>\:2 \end{Bmatrix}

    i know how to do the first and last ones but not the second one.
    i can plot it on the graph but iam unsure which side to shade!
    Can someone help me and show me where to shade? thanks!

    On (1) and (3), how did you decide which side to shade?
    What method did you use?

    Apply the same method to (2) . . .

    Hello, andyboy179!

    on 1, y is more than 2x+1 so i want that so i shade where less is.

    . . I don't understand this.

    #1 has: . y \:>\:2x+1

    First, graph the line: . y \:=\:2x+1

    Since the inequality has " \,y is greater than",
    . . shade the region above the line.


    #2 has: . y \:<\:x

    Graph the line: . y \:=\:x

    Since the inequality has " \,y is less than",
    . . shade the region below the line.
