Applications of Compound Inequalities Compound Inequalities. Union and Intersection In Chapter we graphed simple inequalities and epressed the solution set in interval notation and in set-builder notation. In this chapter, we will solve compound inequalities that involve the union or intersection of two or more inequalities. A Union B and A Intersection B The union of sets A and B, denoted A B, is the set of elements that belong to set A or to set B or to both sets A and B. The intersection of two sets A and B, denoted A B, is the set of elements common to both A and B. The concepts of the union and intersection of two sets are illustrated in Figures 9- and 9-.

Graphing a Feasible Region Linear Inequalities in Two Variables. Graphing Linear Inequalities in Two Variables A linear inequalit in two variables and is an inequalit that can be written in one of the following forms: a b c, a b 7 c, a b c, or a b c, provided a and b are not both zero. A solution to a linear inequalit in two variables is an ordered pair that makes the inequalit true. For eample, solutions to the inequalit are ordered pairs, ) such that the sum of the - and -coordinates is less than. This inequalit has an infinite number of solutions, and therefore it is convenient to epress the solution set as a graph. To graph a linear inequalit in two variables, we will follow these steps. Graphing a Linear Inequalit in Two Variables. Solve for, if possible.. Graph the related equation. Draw a dashed line if the inequalit is strict, or. Otherwise, draw a solid line.. Shade above or below the line as follows: Shade above the line if the inequalit is of the form 7 a b or a b. Shade below the line if the inequalit is of the form a b or a b. This process is demonstrated in Eample. Eample Graphing a Linear Inequalit in Two Variables Graph the solution set.

45 Section 9. Linear Inequalities in Two Variables Solution: Solve for. Net graph the line defined b the related equation. Because the inequalit is of the form a b, the solution to the inequalit is the region below the line. See Figure 9-. Figure 9- Skill Practice Graph the solution set.. After graphing the solution to a linear inequalit, we can verif that we have shaded the correct side of the line b using test points. In Eample, we can pick an arbitrar ordered pair within the shaded region. Then substitute the - and -coordinates in the original inequalit. If the result is a true statement, then that ordered pair is a solution to the inequalit and suggests that other points from the same region are also solutions. For eample, the point, ) lies within the shaded region Figure 9-7).? True Substitute, ) in the original inequalit. The point, ) from the shaded region is a solution. In Eample, we will graph the solution set to a strict inequalit. A strict inequalit uses the smbol or. In such a case, the boundar line will be drawn as a dashed line. This indicates that the boundar itself is not part of the solution set. Test point, ) Figure 9-7 Eample Graphing a Linear Inequalit in Two Variables Graph the solution set. Solution: 7 7 Solve for.

46 Chapter 9 More Equations and Inequalities Figure 9-8 Graph the line defined b the related equation,. The boundar line is drawn as a dashed line because the inequalit is strict. Also note that the line passes through the origin. Because the inequalit is of the form 7 a b, the solution to the inequalit is the region above the line. See Figure 9-8. Skill Practice. Graph the solution set. Test point, ) Figure 9-9 In Eample, we cannot use the origin as a test point, because the point, ) is on the boundar line. Be sure to select a test point strictl within the shaded region. In this case, we choose, ). See Figure 9-9.? True Substitute, ) in the original inequalit. The point, ) from the shaded region is a solution to the original inequalit. In Eample, we encounter a situation in which we cannot solve for the -variable. Eample Graphing a Linear Inequalit in Two Variables Graph the solution set. Solution: Skill Practice Answers.. Figure 9- Skill Practice. Test point, ) Graph the solution set. In this inequalit, there is no -variable. However, we can simplif the inequalit b solving for. Graph the related equation. This is a vertical line. The boundar is drawn as a solid line, because the inequalit is not strict,. To shade the appropriate region, refer to the inequalit,. The points for which is greater than are to the right of. Therefore, shade the region to the right of the line Figure 9-). Selecting a test point such as, ) from the shaded region indicates that we have shaded the correct side of the line. Substitute. True
