Why use x or y intercepts in linear

Jun 20th, 2015

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Both are important because they help in getting the slope/gradient of the linear graph.With linear inequalities you're basically graphing a line and then determining whether what's above or below the line will make the statement true. The line would be the same as if there was an = instead of > or < so any method you use to graph the line you could also use to graph the inequality. Then you just have to determine whether above or below the line makes it true, by using a test point like you probably always do.

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
