1)The first step always is to convert to slope-intercept form,
$\displaystyle y=mx+b$

2)Remember the dotted line is for $\displaystyle <$ and the solid line is for $\displaystyle \leq$ when grahping inequalities.

3)When you need to chose a point to determine the inequality and which side to shade. It is always the easiest to take $\displaystyle (0,0)$

Think of the $\displaystyle \leq$ sign, have you noticed there's a line under it? If the sign has a line under it than the graph will have an unbroken line. If it doesn't then it is a dashed line.
