    Yes. If you put it in the form: \(\sf \color{red}{y=mx+b}\) You will see

    god help us it is not your fault, but \[-y - 2 = x + 1\] is not a function at all it is an equation

    It's a linear function, no?

    no it is not a linear "function" it is an equation for a line thus beginning the long confusion between the concept of "function" and "equation" it is not your fault just bad math teachers

    anyway what they want you to do is solve for \(y\) \[-y - 2 = x + 1\] \[-y=x+3\] \[y=-x-3\]

    but is it increasing or decreasing

    and then say "since the slope is negative, it is decreasing

    \[y=-x-3\\y=mx+b\] \[m=-1\] so it is decreasing

    y = -5x + 4 so this one is increasing right
