Which of the regions on the graph contain solutions to the inequality π¦ is greater than or equal to two π₯ minus four?
00:00:12.080 --> 00:00:23.350
When reading the question, it is important to note that the word βregionsβ is plural, which suggests there is more than one region that satisfies the inequality.
00:00:24.470 --> 00:00:34.450
We can begin this question by considering which line on our graph corresponds to the equation π¦ is equal to two π₯ minus four.
00:00:35.610 --> 00:00:50.700
Any linear equation which corresponds to a straight line graph can be written in the form π¦ equals ππ₯ plus π, where π is the slope or gradient and π is the π¦-intercept.
00:00:51.690 --> 00:00:58.390
Our equation has a slope or gradient of two and a π¦-intercept of negative four.
00:00:59.390 --> 00:01:04.310
This means that our graph must cross the π¦-axis at negative four.
00:01:05.520 --> 00:01:11.810
A positive slope or gradient means that our line must slope up from left to right.
00:01:12.770 --> 00:01:20.140
As the slope is equal to two, for every one unit we move to the right, we must move two units up.
00:01:21.220 --> 00:01:28.580
The line that corresponds to the equation π¦ equals two π₯ minus four is shown in pink.
00:01:29.610 --> 00:01:42.990
As the inequality sign is greater than or equal to, we draw a solid line, whereas had it been strictly greater than or strictly less than, we wouldβve drawn a dashed or broken line.
00:01:43.810 --> 00:01:52.110
As the π¦-values need to be greater than or equal to two π₯ minus four, the region must lie above our line.
00:01:52.910 --> 00:02:00.050
There are four such regions on our figure, regions A, B, C, and D.
00:02:01.190 --> 00:02:14.490
The regions on the graph that contain solutions to the inequality π¦ is greater than or equal to two π₯ minus four are A, B, C, and D.
00:02:15.790 --> 00:02:22.280
We can check this answer by substituting in the coordinates of any points in these regions.
00:02:23.020 --> 00:02:29.390
For example, the point with coordinates negative five, five lies in region A.
00:02:30.400 --> 00:02:35.690
The π₯-value here is negative five, and the π¦-value is five.
00:02:36.520 --> 00:02:47.430
Substituting these values into our inequality, we have five is greater than or equal to two multiplied by negative five minus four.
00:02:48.590 --> 00:02:56.050
Two multiplied by negative five is negative 10, and subtracting four from this gives us negative 14.
00:02:56.800 --> 00:03:05.080
As five is greater than or equal to negative 14, this point does satisfy our inequality.
00:03:05.900 --> 00:03:13.180
We could repeat this process for any other point in the regions A, B, C, and D.
