How would I graph this?

  1. Nov 19, 2007 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    2. Relevant equations


    3. The attempt at a solution

    I dont know

    What do you think the two inequalities infer, what points on the x-y graph meet the critera? Hint: Begin by sketching Y < x, and Y > -x as two functions.

    Im aware. But I mean plotting the points on the graph. Would I just start from (0,0) and just follow their slopes? (1/1) ;(-1/1)?

    Plotting which points exactly? You can plot the two functions by picking values for x and deteremining y. If you're talking about plotting the points such that Y < x, and Y > -x, then you need to shade the region that meets the criteria. You wouldn't graph each point separately, as there are infinitely many.
