The horizontal line can be described with the equation $y=0$ and the vertical line is given by $x=0.$ To find the equation of the dashed line we can mark the slope and the $y$-intercept. Then, the equation can be written in slope-intercept form.

Now we have the equations of the three boundary lines representing the region. The next step is to write inequalities for each equation to form a system of inequalities. We see that the shaded area is below, but not on, the line $y=\text{-} x+4,$ which means that the first inequality is
$y < \text{-} x+4.$
The area is also located to the right of $x=0.$ This means it's all $x$-values **greater than or equal** $0.$
$x \geq 0.$
Finally, the area also above, and on, the line $y=0.$ Together these three inequalities describes the shaded region.
$\begin{cases}y < \text{-} x+4 \\ x \geq 0 \\ y \geq0 \end{cases}$
