The linear equation is .

The *y*-intercept is the value of *y *when *x *= 0.

(Substitute 0 for *x*)

(Apply additive identity property: )

The *y*-intercept is 1. The graph crosses the *y*-axis at (0, 1).

The *x*-intercept is the value of *x *when *y *= 0.

(Substitute 0 for *y*)

Apply addition property of equality: if *a *=* b* then *a *+* c* =* b** *+* c.*

(Add 1 to each side)

(Apply additive inverse property: )

(Apply additive identity property: *a* + 0 = *a*)

The *x*-intercept is 1. The graph crosses the *x*-axis at (1, 0).

Use these ordered pairs to graph the equation.

1. Draw a coordinate plane

2. Plot the points

3. Draw a line through these points.
