The inequality to be graphed is: 2x - y >= 4

2x - y >= 4

=> y <= 2x - 4

The graph of the line 2x - y = 4 is shown below.

The region that satisfies the inequality 2x - y >= 4 is made up of the points that lie on the line and the region that lies below the line.

The next inequality is: 4x-2y<-2

4x - 2y < -2

=> 2y > 4x + 2

=> y > 2x + 1

The points that satisfy the given inequality lie above the line that has been drawn.
