2x + 1 at each point.

**Reiny**, Monday, January 26, 2009 at 9:28pmdid you draw the line.

for any line, unless it is vertical, you can be either above or below the line.

e.g. for your y = 2x + 1

consider (6,5), below above the line.

Why?

substitute the value x = 6

then y = 2(6)+1 = 13, but the y for your point was 5

since 5 < 13, the point (6,5) is below the line.

consider (3,15)

if x=3 in the equation y = 6+1 = 7

since 15 > 7, the point (3,15) is above the line.

Draw any non-vertical line on a piece of paper. Isn't there a region above that line and a region below that line no matter you imagine that line to go ??
