You move the graph upwards by 2 units.

y equals x-4 plus 2 is the same as y = x-2. You just translate the graph of y=x, 2 units to the right, OR 2 down.

y = |x| - 2

A horizontal line, 1 unit below the x-axis.

No translation will invert a quadratic graph.

To translate the graph y = x to the graph of y = x - 6, shift the graph of y = x down 6 units.

You move the graph upwards by 2 units.

y equals x-4 plus 2 is the same as y = x-2. You just translate the graph of y=x, 2 units to the right, OR 2 down.

First, reflect the graph of y = x² in the x-axis (line y = 0) to obtain the graph of y = -x²; then second, shift it 3 units up to obtain the graph of y = -x² + 3.

I suggest "boring".

y = |x| - 2

The lines are parallel.

The equation you have given, y + 2 = 7, does not describe a line, it describes the number 5. You would not graph a single number, there is nothing to graph.

So, if we see the basic equation y=mx+b, we see that m=2, and b=1. If you look closely, this is basic rotation and translation of the original graph. First, I would translate the "mother graph" (y=mx) and then translate one up. Then, we would rotate the graph to the right two units.
