y<x-1    plug in the numbers from the (x,y).....< means less than.....>means greater than

-2<0-1     or      -3<2-1

draw a number line, plot -2 and -1 or -3 and 1  to prove

Try this. Graph the line x = y+1

If the ordered pair is above this line, meaning x > y+1, then it satisfies the solution.

You can draw the line here http://www.ronblond.com/M10/lineAP. The slope m = 1. Do you have a 45 degree line running from bottom left to top right that crosses the y axis at -1. Anything above this line is the solution.


Gratitude as a discipline involves a conscious choice.....* Victims of circumstance owe it to fate. Victims of choice owe it to themselves.*One of the widest gaps in human experience is the gap between what we say we want to be and our willingness to discipline ourselves to get there.

2 ways to do it:
1.  Simply check:
     Is  -3<2-1  ?  Yes -3 < 1  so (2, -3)
     Is -2 < -1-1 ? No only equals so (-1, -2)
     does NOT.    D(0, -2)
     Is -1 < 4-1   ?  - Yes -1 < 3 so (4, -1)
     Is -2 < -2-1  NO -2 is bigger than -3 so
     it doesn't answer.
2.  Draw a line y=x-1  Passing through
     (0, -1) (1,0) any y above the line copes
     with that requirement.

Can I order prescriptions glasses online?

Even an online eyeglass provider would need your 'prescription' to make proper lenses for you to see properly. You would STILL need to see an optometrist for an eye exam to get a prescription. Why not just call a cab to go to your closest Optometrist & get the whole works done at one time?
