There are four types of quadratic
inequalities in two variables.

y > ax2 + bx + c   y < ax2 + bx + c

y ≥ ax2 + bx + c   y ≤ ax2 + bx + c
Two Variables
1. Draw the parabola. (Find vertex coordinates
x=b/2a and substitute into the equation to find y.
Then find one more point to draw the parabola.)
Make the parabola dashed for inequalities with
< or > and solid for inequalities with≤ or ≥.
2. Choose a point (x,y) inside the parabola and
check whether the point is a solution of the
inequality.
3. If the point form step 2 is a solution, shade the
region inside the parabola. If it is not a solution,
shade the region outside of the parabola.

(Looking for x intercepts)
x2 − 6x + 5 < 0.
Let y = 0 and
factor to solve.

(x−1)(x−5) = 0
x = 1 or x = 5

x2 + 2x ≤ 8                Test x = −5 in the equation
x2 + 2x − 8 =0             Test x = 0 in the equation

•If the equation is > or <, the parabola is
dashed.
•Either the inside or the outside of the
parabola is shaded. Pick a point not on
the parabola and see if it makes a true
statement. If true, shade where the point
is located. If not, shade the other area.
