# How do you find the intercepts for x+y=1?

Nov 22, 2015

Refer to the Explanation.

#### Explanation:

$x + y = 1$

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

$x + 0 = 1$

$x = 1$

The x-intercept is $1$ and the point is $\left(1 , 0\right)$.

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

$0 + y = 1$

$y = 1$

The y-intercept is $1$ and the point is $\left(0 , 1\right)$.
