Geometry HELP!!!

What happens to the graph of the line y = 3x -2 when the equation is changed to y = 3x +6?

What happens to the graph of the line y = 2x - 5 when the equation is changed to y = 5x + 6?



On the first question:
What happens to the graph of the line y = 3x -2 when the equation is changed to y = 3x +6?

The new line is parallel to the old line, shifted upward.

On the second queation.What happens to the graph of the line y = 2x - 5 when the equation is changed to y = 5x + 6
The line is moved upward, and slopes much more up.


Thanks!!How do you find the x and y interepts of each linear equation as ordered pairs:
a.y=3x-6
b.6y=x+2
