I am not sure how to use a t-chart to figure out this problem.

-2x – y ≥ 4
Y ≥ -2
X ≥ -6

Thank you

Your result is a right triangle with y=-2x-4 as the hypotenuse

Thank you, I think I understand it now.

With these types of graphs, you get a region.
Graph x=-6, y=-2 and y=-2x-4.
Since you want x-6, the region is to the right of the line x=-6.
Since you want y-2, the region is above y=-2.
Now rearrange -2x-y4 to give y-2x-4, the region is below the line y=-2x-4.
We include the lines because each of the inequalities is ''.
What you get is a right triangle.
If you want to find the domain, it is greater than or equal to -6 and less than or equal to the point where the line y=-2x-4 intersects the line y=-2. If you want to find the range, it is greater than or equal to -2 and less than or equal to the point where the line y=-2x-4 intersects the line x=-6.

Okay now I'm confused. Can you break it down to steps?
Ultraglide Posted - 03/26/2013 : 18:16:42
First, graph the two inequalities, x-6 and y-2.
Then graph -2x-y=4 (just the equality). It may help by rearranging it to y = -2x-4. Be careful with this one, remember if you include he inequality, it is now y-2x-4
Now, decide where the region that satisfies all the inequalities lies remembering that you include the boundary lines.

I'm not sure why it posted that way, here is the problem again,

Graph the solution set of the system.


*What I don't understand is how to use the t-chart to figure out the solution, I don't understand what numbers to start on the t-chart to figure out the solution. I know it looks like a T and you place the x on the top left and the y on the top right. Then you start to enter numbers below the line under each letter to find the solution, problem is that I don't understand what numbers do I start with?

Thank you for your help,

Is your problem one dealing with T-Numbers and/or T-Totals?

Might you be able to explain the hieroglyphics?
