You can use inequalities and restrictions to shade your graph, like this: https://www.desmos.com/calculator/mvcuf0mirs

Does anyone know how to fill-in the hair? I want the hair to all be black and have no white inside.

Camilla, You have to create inequalities (one piece at a time). For example, I have added a bit of shading in cell 3 of https://www.desmos.com/calculator/cstr9bkp6l for your graph. It's a tedious process, but the end result can be worth it.

• Alan Parry

To shade a region satisfied by multiple inequalities (such as for linear programming), plot the first inequality, then use the remaining inequalities as multiple domain restrictions.

See https://www.desmos.com/calculator/ktled0miqy for an example.

It does appear that desmos handles nonlinear domain restrictions with a little less finesse than linear ones, so I would suggest if you have a nonlinear inequality in your list, use that as the first one and the image will look better.

I want to shade in the corner of a square, but only the part outside a circle with a radius of 10 units. the sides of the square are each 10 units.

• Michael Fenton

Hi Colby! You'll have to adjust the values to get the size you want, but you can try something like this: https://www.desmos.com/calculator/dqy55d231t

How can i shade in the right wing?

S013683 - The link just opens the calculator. Perhaps it's the link to your individual worksheet, so it won't let anyone else open it. Use the share button to get a link to your graph that is shareable.

S013683 - I still can't get the link to do anything other than take me to an empty calculator. Other links are working fine, so I'm stumped. All I can suggest is that you start replacing some of your equations that draw the right wing with inequalities. You might need to add extra restrictions to get the shading where you want it.

How would I change my inequalities to shade in my fourth section correctly?

How would I be able to shade in the mustache area on my graph. I've been trying for a good while now, but I just can't seem to figure it out.

I tried using multiple inequalities, but the shading came out glitchy/incomplete. Any ideas?

So I asked my Geometry teacher and my parents but no one could figure out how to fill in the rest of the star. I have been stumped by this. Please try to only fill in the star.                                  https://www.desmos.com/calculator/h61x4iqux3

Nice graph Random 9th Grader. You just need to use 4 more compound inequalities like you already did at the bottom of your list. Identify the formulas for the top and bottom curves of each region and try something like bottom < y < top. For example, here is one of the 4 you need.

0.64x-1.15<y<-.64x-1.15\left\{-1.63<x<0\right\}

Just copy and paste that code into a cell to see the region. Note that I just took your formula for 2 of the lines to get that code.

Hi,

I was trying to shade the inner loop of a limacon. I did everything I know. But the inner loop is not completely been shaded.

• Serge Ballif

@Ecstaticniya You can try converting it to Cartesian coordinates. Here's an example. https://www.desmos.com/calculator/tnf1is3jw3

Hi,

Thank you. I did it. <iframe src="https://www.desmos.com/calculator/u2ijzeobgb?embed" width="500px" height="500px" style="border: 1px solid #ccc" frameborder=0></iframe>

I'm trying to shade/colour my logo project, and since the lines are separate, how do I shade it? (Colouring in the corresponding folders: Outer lines, third outline)

Here is the project: https://www.desmos.com/calculator/0fcknyk4jp

Yes, I'm trying to shade it just like the original pic.

• Serge Ballif

Tigerwarrior13, You'll have to use inequalities such as "≤" instead of "=" for your curves. That also means you'll need to add many more restrictions to get what you want. There's no easy shortcut.

I have a parabola that has a shaded region on the right end of the graph. Two x intercepts are (-2,2) and the y intercept is -4.. The region shaded is on the left side of the right side of the graph by loo straight
