Graphing Quadratic Inequalities

Graphing Quadratic Inequalities 1.12 - Solution

arrow_back Return to Graphing Quadratic Inequalities

To graph the quadratic inequality, we will follow three steps.

  1. Graph the related quadratic function.
  2. Test a point not on the parabola.
  3. Shade accordingly. If the point satisfies the inequality, we shade the region that contains the point. If not, we shade the opposite region.

Step

Let's draw the graph of the related function, Since represents the diameter of the suspender cables, we will draw it for non-negative values of

Step

Next, let's determine which region to shade by testing a point. We will use as our test point. Let's see if it satisfies the given inequality.

Step

Since produced a true statement, we will shade the region that contains the point. Also, note that the inequality is not strict. Therefore, the parabola will be solid.

The shaded region represents weights that can be safely supported by a suspension bridge with cables with various diameter.
