# Math Help - Linear Inequalities

1. ## Linear Inequalities

Determine whether point P is a solution of the linear inequality.

1. y ≤ -2x + 1; P(2,2)

2. x < 2; P(1,0)

3. y ≥ 3x-2; P(0,0)

4. y > x - 1; P(0,1)

5. y ≥ -2/5x + 4; P(0,0)

6. y > 5/3x - 4; P(0,1)

Thanks for helping me understand these problems!( Clapping)

I do the first one so you can get the idea.
The meaning of $P(2,2)$ means $x=2,y=2$.
So is it true that $(2) \leq -2 (2) + 1$?
If so then $y\leq -2x+1$ is true for that point.

3. In other words, put the (x,y) values you are given into the formula and do the arithmetic! See whether the inequality is true or not.
