Work Step by Step

The first inequality has a strict inequality sign, "$ < $". This means that the line $x-3y=6$ is NOT a part of the solution set of the system, and will be graphed with a dashed line. The intersection belongs to both lines, so it belongs to the line $x-3y=6$, therefore, it can not be a part of the solution set. The statement is false.
