### Question

The shaded portion in the diagram is the solution of

### Options

A) x + y $$\leq$$ 3

B) x + y < 3

C) x + y > 3

D) x + y $$\geq$$ 3

### Explanation:

Using $$\frac{x}{a} + \frac{y}{b}$$ < 1for the equation of the time

where a = intercept on x-axis and b = intercept on y - axis

$$\frac{x}{3} + \frac{y}{3} = 1$$

= $$\frac{x + y}{3} = 1$$

= x + y < 3

## Dicussion (1)

• Using $$\frac{x}{a} + \frac{y}{b}$$ < 1for the equation of the time

where a = intercept on x-axis and b = intercept on y - axis

$$\frac{x}{3} + \frac{y}{3} = 1$$

= $$\frac{x + y}{3} = 1$$

= x + y < 3
