I looked in the back of the book and the graph line has Y intercept at -2 and Slope at up 3 over 1, making it Y=3x-2. I assume that even if I have to flop numbers I do no sign switching as long as Y is already by itself and MX & B is on the other side? Thats the only explanation I can come up with but I don't know.

Next issue is checking the line and shading one side, I check using point 0, and 0 is not less than -2 so I shade on the right side of the line, but the graph in the back of the book shows the left side being shaded.

My teacher purposely gives us questions that are in the back of the book so we can self check but I can not figure this out.
