OK, here another on that I am having difficulty with -- please help if you can!

(0, ), ( ,0), (-8, )

y=x - 3
y= 0 - 3
y = -3

(0, -3)

y=x - 3
0 = x - 3
0+3 = x - 3 + 3
3 = X

(3,0)

y = x - 3
y = 6 - 3
y = - 3

(-8, -3)

0+3 = x - 3 + 3

y = x - 3
y = 6 - 3<----- which problem are you doing?
y = - 3...<----- Does not follow from above.

(-8, -3)

Did you try to check the answers yourself - by using the given equation and your answer?

Yes, but the teacher had given us the answers to check ourselves, after checking her - she must be wrong because her points are not in line, they are all over the graft. I mistakenly assumed she was right!

Thanks for your help!
