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

    2)Remember the dotted line is for < and the solid line is for \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 (0,0)

    I don't know if you're having trouble with this or not, so I might as well tell it to you...

    I thought of a trick when trying to remember whether to use a dashed or normal line, and I came up with this...
    Think of the \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.
