Which of the following ordered pairs is not a solution to the inequality y -3x - 2? A. (0, -1) B. (0, 0) C. (-1, 0) D. (1, 1) Which of the following ordered pairs is a solution to the inequality y 3x - 2? A. (2, 0) B. (0, 4) C. (0, -3) D. (1, -1) I already asked the first question and they said it was A, but Im not sure on how to solve it on my own? Can someone help me?

OpenStudy (anonymous):

1. y >= -3x -2 2. y >= 3x -2

OpenStudy (mertsj):

Did you try plugging in the points?

OpenStudy (anonymous):

sorry

OpenStudy (anonymous):

for the first one I got -1 >= -2 for (0,-1) but thats not the right answers right? because the question is asking which is NOT a solution?

OpenStudy (mertsj):

Right. It has to make a false statement.

OpenStudy (mertsj):

Also you left out the inequality symbols again.

OpenStudy (anonymous):

so for (0,0) i got 0 >= -2 and thats incorrect so would that be the answer?

OpenStudy (mertsj):

O is greater than -2

OpenStudy (anonymous):

but not equal to... right?

OpenStudy (anonymous):

let me try the other ones

OpenStudy (mertsj):

It doesn't have to be both. Just one of the other has to be true. That's why it is greater than OR equal to

OpenStudy (anonymous):

ooo okay I just did (-1,0) and that came out to be 0>=-1 that is false so that would be the answer right?
