1. Which line is the flattest (or is less steep)? Why?

y = 5x -6

y = 5x + 6

y = x - 3

y = x + 3

I thought it would be the last one since it has the smallest slope

Well, yes...but both the third and last equations have a slope of 1, and so have the same "steepness" (these lines a parallel to each other)
