Graph each boundary line (solid if included, dashed if not).

Next, use a test point to determine the half-plane for each boundary. Use a highlighter pen to shade the intersection of the half-planes. See Examples 1 and 2.[/tippy]

**[tippy title=”Problem 19″]Problem 19**

This problem is making sure you know when a point is feasible.[/tippy]

**[tippy title=”Problem 20″]Problem 20**

This problem is making sure you know when you have a corner point.[/tippy]

**[tippy title=”Problems 21-34″]Problems 21-34**

Graph each boundary line (solid if included, dashed if not).

Next, use a test point to determine the half-plane for each boundary. Use a highlighter pen to shade the intersection of the half-planes. See Examples 1 and 2.[/tippy]

**[tippy title=”Problems 35-46″]Problems 35-46**

Set up these problems by building a table as shown in Example 3. Read the directions carefully; you are asked for the corner points only.[/tippy]

The procedure to follow is shown using four steps summarized in a box at the beginning of this section. These steps are illustrated in Example 3.[/tippy]

### Note: Homework Hints are given only for the Level 1 and Level 2 problems.

However, as you go through the book be sure you look at all the examples in the text. If you need hints for the Level 3 problems, check some sources for help on the internet (see the LINKS for that particular section. As a last resort, you can call the author at (707) 829-0606.

On the other hand, the problems designated “Problem Solving” generally require techniques that do not have textbook examples.
