Is the point P(0,2) in the region bounded below by y=x

    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Is the point P(0,2) in the region bounded below by y=x

    I'm not quite sure i understand this question. the 'bounded below' part mainly. Is it asking if the point is below the x axis? The wording is confusing me

    2. Relevant equations



    3. The attempt at a solution
    I think the answer is no. because the point is above the x axis

    Re: regions

    The region bounded below by y = x is the set of points not below the graph of y=x. Or, to put it another way, the set of points on or above that graph.

    so the answer is actually yes coz it is above the graph
