5. 5. Holt Algebra 2 3-3 Solving Systems of Linear Inequalities When a problem uses phrases like “greater than” or “no more than,” you can model the situation using a system of linear inequalities. A system of linear inequalities is a set of two or more linear inequalities with the same variables. The solution to a system of inequalities is often an infinite set of points that can be represented graphically by shading. When you graph multiple inequalities on the same graph, the region where the shadings overlap is the solution region.
6. 6. Holt Algebra 2 3-3 Solving Systems of Linear Inequalities Graph the system of inequalities. Example 1A: Graphing Systems of Inequalities y ≥ –x + 2 y < – 3 For y < – 3, graph the dashed boundary line y = – 3, and shade below it. For y ≥ –x + 2, graph the solid boundary line y = –x + 2, and shade above it. The overlapping region is the solution region.
7. 7. Holt Algebra 2 3-3 Solving Systems of Linear Inequalities Check Test a point from each region on the graph. Region Point Left (0, 0) Right (5,–2) Top (0, 3) Bottom (0,–4) Only the point from the overlapping (right) region satisfies both inequalities. y ≥ –x + 2y < x – 31 2 3 < (0)–31 2 –4 < (0)–31 2 –4 < –3 2 < –3 0 < (0)–31 2 0 < –3 –2 < (5) –31 2 –2 <– 1 2 0 ≥ –(0) + 2 –4 ≥ 2 –4 ≥ –(0) + 2 3 ≥ 2 3 ≥ –(0) + 2 –2 ≥ –3 0 ≥ 2 –2 ≥ –(5) + 2    x xx x 

9. 9. Holt Algebra 2 3-3 Solving Systems of Linear Inequalities Graph each system of inequalities. Example 1B: Graphing Systems of Inequalities y ≥ –1 y < –3x + 2 For y < –3x + 2, graph the dashed boundary line y = –3x + 2, and shade below it. For y ≥ –1, graph the solid boundary line y = –1, and shade above it.
