2y+x>5 (2nd part)

with these equations what I need to do is list the missing numbers (x,y) that best fits the equation. Once I've done that, I put it on a graph, in order for the problem to be correct, the two lines need to intersect. Can you help me?

I think you mean that "thebryanandrew said:the equation has two parts to it.

I'm sorry, but I can't figure out what this might mean...? You've already received instruction on how to graph the lines, but you seem to have said that, since you already learned that method a few lectures ago, you cannot, for some reason, now use that method...? What methodbryanandrew said:I've figured out the second part but need help on the first part....

what I need to do is list the missing numbers (x,y) that best fits the equation.

Note: Since the solution to a linear inequality of the type you've listed is half of the plane, there are infinitely-many points that "fit" the inequalitiy. To my knowledge, no one point is "better" than another, so there is no "best" point to "fit" the inequality. It might help if you explained what you mean by this...?

Thank you!
