Can you give me steps on how to do this and can you do this problem so I can figure out the rest. Thanks so much.

Directions: Graph each pair of equations. Describe any similarities or differences and explain why they are a family graph.

1. y= 3x-2

y= -x-2

for each equation make a table of values of at least two ordered pairs, then graph each line

first one:

y = 3x - 2

x y

0 -2

2 4

notice that this line has a slope of 3 and a y-intercept of -2

second one:

y = -x - 2

x y

0 -2

-4 2

this one has a slope of -1, it should lean to the left, and a y-intercept of -2

notice they intersect at (0,-2), so they would be part of a "family" of lines that pass through the common point (0,-2)

What do you mean by lean to the left
