#### Work Step by Step

Create a table with some values that satisfy the statement. $\underline{Bea's Age, x}\ \ \ \ \underline {Ty's Age, y}$ $\ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ 5\ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ 2$ $\ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ 6\ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ 3$ $\ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ 7\ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ 4$ If Ty is 3 years younger than Bea, then Ty's age is 3 years less than Bea's age. $y=x-3$ Graph the points in the table and connect with a line.
