#### Answer

Refer to the graph below. #### Work Step by Step

Solve for $y$ by adding $y$ and $2$ to both sides of the equation: $x-y+y+2=-2+y+2 \\x+2=y \\y=x+2$ Thus, the given equation is equivalent to $y=x+2$. To graph the equation, perform the following steps: (1) Create a table of values by assigning convenient values to $x$, then solve for the corresponding value of $y$ for each value of $x$. (refer to the attached image below for the table) (2) Plot each point (or ordered pair) on the same coordinate plane, then connect the points using a straight line. (refer to the attached image in the answer part above for the final graph) After you claim an answer you’ll have 24 hours to send in a draft.
