    It is not D because you are not changing the slope 5 It is not y because you our decreasing the y intercept It is not B because you are not creating a whole new line just changing the other YAY it is A. The more you decrease the y intercept the more the x intercept will increase. Here we can see there is a relationship with Y and X, which algebra is all about relationships
