    Work out the equations of all the boundary lines. Then test points ((0,0) and (1,1) usually work best) to see which way the inequalities go. Do you have your exam on Monday 25th?

    Don't forget to check to see if its a dotted line and therefore > or <
    If its a solid line then >= or <=

    Update:

    Hi

    Just to check what ive done wrong

    (3,0) (0,4)

    m = 4/-3 => -4/3

    y-0=-4/3(x-3)
    y=-4/3x + 4

    test (0,3)

    3=-4/3x0 + 4
    3=4

    3<=4

    y<=-4/3x + 4
    3y<=-4x+12

    however does it make any difference that the answer is 4x+3y<=12

    will it gain the same answer?
