To graph the , we will follow three steps.
- Graph the related .
- Test a point not on the .
- Shade accordingly. If the point satisfies the inequality, we shade the region that contains the point. If not, we shade the opposite region.
Let's draw the graph of the related function, which is
Next, let's determine which region to shade by testing a point. For simplicity, we will use
as our test point. Let's see if it satisfies the given inequality.
Since produced a false statement, we will shade the region that does not contain the point. Also, note that the inequality is strict. Therefore, the parabola will be dashed.
