# 6-5 linear inequalities ```“WHAT’S THE POINT?!”
Object of the game: To locate a secret point on the coordinate plane by
asking as few questions as possible.
How to Play:
• Player A chooses a secret point on the coordinate plane. Each coordinate
must be an integer from -10 to 10.
• Player B asks questions that contain the words less than or greater than.
Player A answers each question with only yes or no.
• The players switch roles to complete one round of the game.
How to Win: The player who names the point by asking fewer questions win
the round. The first player to win 3 rounds wins the game.

You can use inequalities to describe regions of a
coordinate plane.
A linear inequality describes a region of the coordinate
plane that has a boundary line. Every point in the region
is a solution of the inequality.
Each point on a
solid boundary line
is a solution
Each point on a dashed
boundary line is not a
solution
