The graph of the inequality is the shaded region and boundary of the inequality is .

To draw boundary of the inequality follow the simple steps.

**1. **Draw a coordinate plane.

**2. **Since inequality symbol is <, the boundary is not included in the solution set. Graph the boundary of the inequality with dashed line.

**3. **To determine which half-plane to be shaded use a test point in either half-plane. A simple choice is .

Substitute *x* = 0 in original inequality .

The statement is true.

**4. **Since the statement is true, shade the region that contains point .
