“Come on! You really want me to graph all those inequalities in that list when I can’t even graph a “regular” equation?”, gasps the student. Say it’s not so!!!
Teacher says, “It’s true alright. It’s called a ‘system of inequalities’ and not only do I want you to graph them, I want you to graph them on the same graph!’
“On top of each other?” says the now panicking student.
“Yes. Then I want you to look at the area you have shaded (you did shade didn’t you?). Then find each vertex of the enclosed region.”
Problems are taken from Advanced Math Concepts by Glencoe.
Solution: The three vertices are: (.6, 3.2) (-.4, 1.2) (1.6, .2)
