Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0A.Each output for y = x – 3 is 3 more than the corresponding output for y = x. The graph of y = x – 3 is the graph of y = x translated down 3 units. B.Each output for y = x – 3 is 3 more than the corresponding output for y = x. The graph of y = x – 3 is the graph of y = x translated up 3 units. C.Each output for y = x – 3 is 3 less than the corresponding output for y = x. The graph of y = x – 3 is the graph of y = x translated down 3 units. D.Each output for y = x – 3 is 3 less than the corresponding output for y = x. The graph of y = x – 3 is the graph of y = x translated up 3 units.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0That two objects are translated in space just means that they are moved. So that the line is translated down 3 units is the same as moving the first line down 3 steps. If you think about it you should be able to figure it out.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0y = x  3 is obtained when you shift y = x down 3 units !
