-5x+8 vs x-4

first, lets separate the 2 functions.

f(x) can be replaced by y

f(x)= -5x+8

x=1 y=3

x=2 y=-2

x=3 y=-7

f(x)= x-4

x= 1 y=-3

x=2 y=-2

x=3 y=-1

the equations intercept at 2,-2

f(x)= x-4 is the greater equation if the linear equation is above the other equations plotted lines.

Katie,

Are you confident that you read/wrote the question properly? The phrase "...less than or greater to..." reminds me of something I might find in a line of computer code as some sort of Boolean operator, for example Pascal's 'not equal to' operator '<>'.
