Introduction

The ability to sketch regions dened by linear inequalities is helpful when studying linear

programming. This leaet reminds you how to sketch these regions. You will need to be familiar

with the manipulation of inequalities and the sketching of linear relationships.

Inequalities

Consider the following problem:

Example

Sketch the region dened by 4x + 3y 24.

Solution

The easiest way to proceed is to rst sketch the linear relationship dened by the equality, rather

than the inequality, that is 4x+3y = 24. Following the method described in Linear Relationships

we nd two points on the line and join them. Two such points are (0, 8) and (6, 0). The line is

shown in Figure 1.

Figure 1

On the line y and x satisfy the equation 4x + 3y = 24. This can be rearranged as y =

4x24

.

Anywhere below this line, y is less than

4x24

3

, that is y <

4x24

. Rearranging again we obtain

4x +3y < 24. Hence the inequality 4x +3y 24 is satised anywhere on or below this line.

This region is shaded in Figure 1.

Example

Sketch the region dened by x +y < 5.

Solution

First of all sketch the line dened by x +y = 5. This is shown in Figure 2.

Note that the equation can be rearranged as y = 5 x and any point on the line satises this

equation. Anywhere below the line y is less than 5 x, that is y < 5 x, or x +y < 5. This region

is shaded in Figure 2.

Example Sketch the region dened by x > 0, y > 0.

Solution The inequalities state that both x and y are greater than zero. This corresponds to the

region shaded in Figure 3.

Example It will be necessary to shade a region satised by two or more inequalities simultaneously.

Sketch the region dened by x 0, y 0, x +y 10 and x + 3y 15.

Solution The rst two inequalities restrict attention to the rst quadrant. The shaded region and

its boundaries are satised by the two remaining inequalities.
