Which of these are less steep?

y=5x+6

y=5x-6

y=x-3

y=x+3

I think it is one of the last two, but I do not know

"steepness" is measured by the absolute value of the slope, m, used in the standard linear equation

y=mx+c

The greater the value of m, the "steeper" is the curve.

If you transform/interpret equations to the above form and compare the values of m in each case, you will find which line is steepest.
