Consider first a linear equation of the form **y = mx + b. **

1. Choose values of m and b, then plot the initial equation.

2. Change m to make a different plot.

3. Change b (but not m) in the original equation and plot the result.

4. Finally, use the new values of m and b to create a plot. Place all four on the same graph.

Now choose a linear inequality of the form **y < mx + b or y > mx + b.**

1. Choose values of m and b, then plot the initial equation.

2. Change m to make a different plot.

3. Change b (but not m) in the original equation, and plot the result.

4. Use the new values of m and b to create a plot.

5. Place all four on the same second graph.
