16) E

Let x = 1.

**Equation 1:**

y = 3x – 2

y = 3(1) – 2

y = 1

**Equation 2:**

y = x²

y = 1²

y = 1 (eq 1 and 2 will intersect)

**Equation 3: **

y = 1 – x²

y = 1 – 1

y = 0 (this is pretty close to 1 and 2)

**Equation 4:**

y = x + 6

y = 1 + 6.

y = 7 (very far away from all graphs but it is farthest away from eq 3)

The furthest graphs are 3 and 4. You can also notice that since eq 4 has a plus sign, the points will always be much higher than equation 3 since equation 3 has 1 – x².

Alternatively, you can draw a quick graph to see which equations will intersect. Whatever suits you best!
