Recall that our line could also be represented by \[y=\frac{2}{3}x+2\]

Set up an inequality that uses this form of the line and verify your result.

Recall, dividing through an inequality by a negative changes the orientation of the symbol

Use test points to verify!

Try \((-2, 4)\) , when you plug it in you get a **false statement.**

Try (1, 3) , when you plug it in you get a **true statement.**

Therefore the student’s shading is wrong.

Return to Try This!
