y = 2x + 8

I know it's going to be above the line and it is going to be dashed, but I don't know how to find the origin. Does it included the origin or does not include the origin?

You can always test it by plugging in the origin (0,0) into the original equation to see if it's valid:

-2(0) - (0) >= -8

0 >= -8 <=== **true statement**

So the origin would be within the shaded region.
