How Do You Graph?

Graph the line 6x+y=-6.

y=-6x-6; slope = -6, y-intercept = -6

Pick a point above and below the line; does the point satisfy the inequality?

Above (0,0) : 6(0)+0>-6; 0>-6 TRUE

Below (0,-10) : 6(0)+-10>-6; -10>-6 FALSE

Shade in the region that satisfies the inequality.

Above the line was TRUE - shade

Below the line was FALSE - do not shade
