Which of the following options can be these inequalities? 1) x>0 2) y>0 3) y<-3x+8 4) y>(1/2)x+4 5) y>(-1/2)x+4 A. 1), 3), 5) B. 1), 3), 4) C. 2), 3), 5) D. 2), 3), 4) E. 2), 4), 5) ### Top Member Legendary Member Joined 02 Mar 2018 Posted: 1184 messages Followed by: 2 members Top Reply The area is surrounded by straight lines if we substitute inequality (< or >) with = , we should get equation of these 3 lines. The 2 lines apart from the y-axis are having negative slope because x and y have opposite effects (i.e. one increases, the other decreases) Option that have negative co-efficient of x and positive co-efficient of y can be equation of the line. Choice 3 and 5 have negative slope by co-efficient of x, -3 and -(1/2). Now, we are left with the third side on the y-axis, x is always 0. So, x=0 is the third side. Inequality can be any of option 1, 3 and 5 which validate option A as the correct answer. ### GMAT/MBA Expert GMAT Instructor Joined 22 Aug 2016 Posted: 2019 messages Followed by: 31 members Upvotes: 470 rawat2583 wrote: In the coordinate plane there is the area of the region shaded surrounded by 3 inequalities.

It does not seem to be a GMAT question. Pl. post GMAT questions from genuine sources. -Jay _________________ Manhattan Review GMAT Prep Locations: GMAT Classes Manhattan | GMAT Prep Courses New Delhi | LSAT Prep Courses Hong Kong | Singapore SAT Prep Classes | and many more...
