Compare the equation with slope-intercept form y = mx + b.

slope = 1 and y-intercept is 2.

y-intercept is 2, so the line crosses the y-axis at (0, 2)

Using slope find the next point.

Slope = rise/run = 1/1.

Start at point (0, 2), move 1 units up and 1 unit right then plot the point (1, 3).

Draw a line through these points.

I hope it helps.
