# Graphing Inequalities Calculator

Graphing Inequalities Calculator solves the inequality and displays the corresponding graph. An inequality consists of the "greater than", "lesser than", or "not equal to" sign. It is used to compare two quantities.

## What is Graphing Inequalities Calculator?

Graphing Inequalities Calculator is an online tool that helps to find the graph for a given inequality. Inequalities are used to represent an unequal relationship between two algebraic expressions. To use the * graphing inequalities calculator*, enter the inequality in the given input box.

## How Does Graphing Inequalities Calculator Work?

Suppose we want to solve a linear inequality. The general form of a linear equation in two variables is given by ax + by = c. Now the same equation can be represented as an inequality by replacing the "=" sign with the required inequality sign. Given below are the steps that can be used to graph such an inequality.

**Step 1:**Irrespective of the inequality sign, we will first solve the linear inequality in the same way as we solve a linear equation.**Step 2:**The variable y will be to the left-hand side (L.H.S) of the equation. The rest of the terms will be shifted to the right-hand side (R.H.S).**Step 3:**Identify certain test points. This implies that we have to substitute the value of x with certain numbers and find the corresponding value of y.**Step 4:**Now we draw a straight line that passes through these test points on a graph.**Step 5:**Take the inequality into consideration and shade the required region. Shade above the line for a "greater than" inequality and below the line for a "lesser than" inequality. The shaded region contains all coordinates that can solve the inequality.

Similar steps can be used to solve other inequalities such as quadratic, cubic, etc.

## Solved Examples on Graphing Inequalities Calculator

**Example 1:**

Compute the graph for 2x + 3y ≤ 7 and verify it using the graphing inequalities calculator.

**Solution:**

Solving the inequality as an equation

2x + 3y = 7.

y = -(2/3)x + 7/3

x = 2, y = 1.

x = 5, y = -1

x = -7, y = 7.

Draw a line passing through these points on the graph.

As we have a "lesser than" inequality, we shade the region below the line.

**Example 2:**

Compute the graph for y > -5x + 2 and verify it using the graphing inequalities calculator.

**Solution:**

Solving the inequality as an equation

y = -5x + 2

x = 0, y = 2.

x = 1, y = -3

x = -1, y = 7.

Draw a line passing through these points on the graph.

As we have a "greater than" inequality, we shade the region above the line.

Similarly, you can try the graphing inequalities calculator to compute the graph for the following inequalities:

- y ≤ 2x + 5
- y > 5x
^{2}- 5
