    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

    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 \(y\) \[-y - 2 = x + 1\] \[-y=x+3\] \[y=-x-3\]

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

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