Please look in your text book for this problem Statement

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 .

Linear inequality x lessthan 3 graph

Inequality graph is

Linear inequality x lessthan 3 graph
