Serena, because "y" is depent variable, you have to give the formula of dependency.

(x, y) ----> (x+2, ???)

Hi again Sister Serena;
The x coordinate of the horizontal axis, is also known as the abscissa.
The y coordinate of the vertical axis, is also known as the ordinate.
The way I memorize this is
x and y are in alphabetical order...
abscissa and ordinate are in alphabetical order...
horizontal and vertical are in alphabetical order.

In this equation, I believe the translation you are looking for is the conversion of words into formula...
x is the abscissa
y is the ordinate
y=x+2
