#### Answer:

build the line equation, then solve it for a few x - y pairs, or let the computer draw it for you :)

#### Explanation:

General line formula is :

here slope m = +1 so your line is :

given that line intercepts y at 1 means that when

so n is :

your line formula becomes:

now solve this equation for x=-3,-2,-1, (x=0 already given in the question), +1,+2,+3 and mark (x,y) points on a cartesian coordinate system, then combine them by a ruler (but dont forget that it is not limited from -3 to +3), extend it as you can...

which is:

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