For example, if you graph y = 3x+5, versus the graph of y = -3x+5 Answer by ewatrrr(10682)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! ``` Hi, y = 3x+5 (Green Line) y = -3x+5 (Blue Line) Lines with negative slopes... slant to the left, thus a larger angle is formed with the x-axis Yes, size of the angle formed with the x-axis is related to the sign of the slope ```
