8x - 3y = 14

Is an equation of a straight line, and shows graphically coordinates all point located on the line.

8x - 3y > 4

However shows the region of a plane away from the line in which

8X -3y > 4 / the coordinates of the points where 8x -3y is greater than 4 , which is the part of the plane located in the left of the line.

In a linear inequality, such as the one you posted, all solutions will fall in the same plane & on the same side of the line.
