Okay, what you want to do first is graph the equation.
Idk how to graph it
Start by plugging in x and y values.

If you put in a 0 for x, you get -5 for y y= 0 - 5 y= -5
okay I got that

Once you have a few points yoou can draw the line
|dw:1440646902667:dw|
Now you take each of those points and move them to the left four spaces
|dw:1440647059340:dw|
Do you see how it just moved each individual point?
Yes, so I just do the same for the other problems like this one?
You can also do this: Let g be the function where f has been translated to the left 4 units \[g(x)=f(x+4)\] if you wanted to do right 4 units you would do f(x-4) if you wanted to move up 4 units you would do f(x)+4 if you wanted to move down 4 units you would do f(x)-4
Yes, the same will work for all problems like this. @freckles is doing it with the equations, but if you are a visual person it will be easier to do it by finding points and bumping them over.
I'll try both of them and see which one works better for me, thank you both of you (:
