There are 2 variables, so you can't 'solve' this equation. However, you can certainly graph it. First, look at like 12x+15y>360. This equation can be simplified by dividing each term by 3. You get 4x+5y>120. Let's pick two points to put on our graph paper that satisfy this equation. If x=0, then y=24. If y=0, then x=30. OK, plot (0,24) and (30,0) on your graph paper and connect the dots with a dotted line since your inequality sign is >. Now, what side to shade? Does the point (0,0) satisfy the equation? No (0 is not greater than 360). OK, so shade the side NOT containing (0,0). Sorry that I can't show the graph to you. Good luck! From, Cornelia M.
