Homework Help: Graphing two Equations

  1. Dec 8, 2004 #1
    "Graph the region defined by the inequalities [itex]x^2 + y^2 - 2x + 4y -5 <= 0[/itex] and [itex]x + y - 1 >= 0[/itex]. Determine the area of the region defined bythe graph."

    I'm confused about the graphing part, I have no idea where to begin.

    Graph the region defined by each separate inequality. The area of overlap between the two areas is the region the question is asking about.
