Solve the given inequality graphically in two-dimensional plane: 2x – 3y > 6
Question:

Solve the given inequality graphically in two-dimensional plane: 2x – 3y > 6

Solution:

The graphical representation of 2x – 3y = 6 is given as dotted line in the figure below. This line divides the xy-plane in two half planes.

Select a point (not on the line), which lies in one of the half planes, to determine whether the point satisfies the given inequality or not.

We select the point as (0, 0).

It is observed that,

2(0) – 3(0) > 6 or 0 > 6, which is false

Therefore, the upper half plane is not the solution region of the given inequality. Also, it is clear that any point on the line does not satisfy the given inequality.

Thus, the solution region of the given inequality is the half plane that does not contain the point (0, 0) excluding the line.

The solution region is represented by the shaded region as follows.
