This corresponds to a point where the graph intersects the x-axis. y-intercept: the point on the graph that has a xcoordinate of 0. This corresponds to the point where the graph intersects the y-axis. Copyright © 2014, 2010, 2007 Pearson Education, Inc. Slide 16 16 of 71

  24. 24. Inequality Property 1 Inequality Property 1 Suppose that a < b and that c is any number. Then a + c < b + c. In other words, the same number can be added or subtracted from both sides of the inequality. Note: Inequality Property 1 also holds if < is replaced by >, < or >. Copyright © 2014, 2010, 2007 Pearson Education, Inc. Slide 24 24 of 71
  25. 25. Example Inequality Property 1 Solve the inequality x + 5 < 2. Subtract 5 from both sides to isolate the x on the left. x+5<2 x+5-5<2-5 x < -3 The values of x for which the inequality holds are exactly those x less than or equal to −3. Copyright © 2014, 2010, 2007 Pearson Education, Inc. Slide 25 25 of 71
  26. 26. Inequality Property 2 Inequality Property 2 2A. If a < b and c is positive, then ac < bc. 2B. If a < b and c is negative, then ac > bc. Note: Inequality Property 2 also holds if < is replaced by >, < or >. Copyright © 2014, 2010, 2007 Pearson Education, Inc. Slide 26 26 of 71
  27. 27. Example Inequality Property 2 Solve the inequality -3x + 1 > 7. Subtract 1 from both sides to isolate the x term on the left. -3x + 1 > 7 -3x + 1 - 1 > 7 - 1 -3x > 6 Divide by -3, or multiply by -1/3 to isolate the x. x < -2 Copyright © 2014, 2010, 2007 Pearson Education, Inc. Slide 27 27 of 71
  28. 28. Standard Form of Linear Inequality A linear inequality of the form cx + dy < e can be written in the standard form 1. y < mx + b or y > mx + b if d ≠ 0, or 2. x < a or x > a if d = 0. Note: The inequality signs can be replaced by >, < or >. Copyright © 2014, 2010, 2007 Pearson Education, Inc. Slide 28 28 of 71

  32. 32. Graph of y > mx + b or y < mx + b To graph the inequality, y > mx + b or y < mx + b: 1. Draw the graph of y = mx + b. 2. Throw away, that is, “cross out,” the portion of the plane not satisfying the inequality. The graph of y > mx + b consists of all points above or on the line. The graph of y < mx + b consists of all points below or on the line. Copyright © 2014, 2010, 2007 Pearson Education, Inc. Slide 32 32 of 71

  35. 35. Summary Section 1.2 - Part 1  The direction of the inequality sign in an inequality is unchanged when a number is added to or subtracted from both sides of the inequality, or when both sides of the inequality are multiplied by the same positive number. The direction of the inequality sign is reversed when both sides of the inequality are multiplied by the same negative number. Copyright © 2014, 2010, 2007 Pearson Education, Inc. Slide 35 35 of 71
  36. 36. Summary Section 1.2 - Part 2  The collection of points in the plane that satisfy the linear inequality ax + by < c or ax + by > c consists of all points on and to one side of the graph of the corresponding linear equation. After this inequality is put into standard form, the graph can be easily pictured by crossing out the half-plane consisting of the points that do not satisfy the inequality. Copyright © 2014, 2010, 2007 Pearson Education, Inc. Slide 36 36 of 71
  37. 37. Summary Section 1.2 - Part 3 The feasible set of a system of linear inequalities (that is, the collection of points that satisfy all the inequalities) is best obtained by crossing out the points not satisfied by each inequality. The feasible set associated to the system of the previous example is a three-sided unbounded region. Copyright © 2014, 2010, 2007 Pearson Education, Inc. Slide 37 37 of 71
