  1. As you know,

    y = 4x-4

    is just a line. All the points on the line satisfy the equation.

    > means "greater than". So, if (2,4) is on the line, (2,5),(2,6),... are above the line, where y > 4x-4.

    So, the solution to an inequality is a whole region of the plane, not just a line. See the graph at
