Work Step by Step

Pretty self-explanatory, using the graph or the equation. The equation has a coefficient of -1, therefore they all have the same gradient, or the lines from the graph are all parallel and therefore have the same gradient. The only difference is the constant term which just shifts the graph up or down.
