Equation of the red line is     y = -x +1

the shaded area PLUS the included red line :    y <= -x+1

Formatted:    y+x -1 <= 0      or   -y-x+1>=0

Noticing that the slope of the line is -1 and the y intercept is 1, the equation of the line in slope intercept form is y=-x+1.

The point (0,0) should work in this inequality, so to make this an inequality this point should be plugged in and then the equals sign adjusted so it is true.

0=-0+1

0=1

This is not true so it should be $$0 \leq 1$$, the less than or equil part because the points on the line should work in the inequality.

$$y \leq -x+1$$

To change this into standard form, the -x needs to be moved to the other side.

$$y+x \leq 1$$

This cannot be simplified further so $$\boxed{y+x \leq 1}$$ is the answer.

Give your answer in "standard form"  ax+by+c>0  or   ax+by+c>=0 and a b c are integers with no common factor other than 1. I’m sorry I forgot about the format. Help! How do I convert it?
