Here x > 2

So to satisfy the equation $$2x + y < 3$$ ; y has to be negative.

Option B

Take: 2x + y < 3

Subtract 2x from both sides to get: y < 3 - 2x

GIVEN: x > 2
If x is greater than 2, we know that 2x is greater than 4

So, we know that: y < 3 - (some number that's greater than 4)

We can see that 3 - (some number that's greater than 4) = some negative number.

We get: y < some negative number, which means y is NEGATIVE

Since a NEGATIVE number is less than 0, the correct answer is B

Cheers,
Brent
