- How do we answer the graph questions about shaded parts(3 votes)
- The only graph question with a shaded something that I remember seeing on the SAT was about systems of inequalities. I'm not sure if giving you a graph with a shaded area and asking you to find the area of that is tested or not.

When you graph an inequality, you graph the line and then shade the area, either below or above the line, that corresponds to all the solutions to that inequality. When you graph a system of inequalities, you just graph and shade the area for both lines, and the doubly-shaded area that's overlapping between the two will be the solution to that inequality. A question like this may give you one such graph of a system of inequalities and ask you if a given point is a solution to the system. If the point is within the doubly-shaded part, it is a solution, and if not, it's not.

am finding it hard to work them out(2 votes)- I believe you mean inequalities?

If so, refer here: https://www.khanacademy.org/math/algebra/x2f8bb11595b61c86:inequalities-systems-graphs/x2f8bb11595b61c86:graphing-two-variable-inequalities/v/graphing-linear-inequalities-in-two-variables-example-2(2 votes)

- If asking or taking a survey in your own perspective there are no right and wrong answers.There will alwase be the outcome you are looking for.Is there any right answers?(1 vote)
- that provide all the information you need to interpret the data in the figure. Before you start looking for the specific answer to a question, read all the labels in the figure. This will help you locate data quickly and interpret it accurately.(1 vote)
