First we graph the line *x* + 1 = *y* using a dotted line since we have a strict inequality. No, we don't care if your line is dotted or dashed. As long as it isn't made up of a string of tiny hearts. Next, we pick a point on one side of the line. Again, (0, 0) is a good one to use. When *x* and *y* are both zero, the inequality is *not* satisfied, so we shade in the area on the other side of the line:
