Find a linear inequality with the following solution set. Each grid line represents one unit.

Give your answer in the form ax + by + c > 0 or ax + by + c >= 0 where a, b and c are integers with no common factor greater than 1.)

The shaded area is everything GREATER than but not including the line (because it is dashed)

Find slope of the line using two convenient integer points slope = rise / run = 2

b, the y axis intercept is shown to be +1

so the line equation is y = 2x+1

the shaded area is y > 2x+1 re-arrange to the requsted form

** -2x+y -1 > 0 **
