#### Explanation:

#"find the intercepts as follows"#

#• " let x = 0, in the equation for y-intercept"#

#• " let y = 0, in the equation for x-intercept"#

#x=0to0-1=yrArry=-1larrcolor(red)" y-intercept"#

#y=0tox-1=0rArrx=1larrcolor(red)" x-intercept"#

#"plot "(0,-1),(1,0)#

#"and draw a straight line through them"#

graph{x-1 [-10, 10, -5, 5]}
