Answer:

Slope = 1
Y Intercept = (0 , 1)
X Intercept = (-1, 0 )

Explanation:

The slope of this is 1 as the slope intercept form is #y=mx+b# but if there is no number in front of the x, it is assume that it is a #1#.

The y-intercept of this expression is (0 , 1). To find it, you need to plug in 0 for x like this #y=0+1# then add on the right side which gives is #y=1# but we need to put it as a coordinate point so whatever we plug in is our x value and our output value is our y value.

To find the x intercept, we need to replace y with 0 like this #0=x+1# then we subtract 1 from both sides which we get #-1=x# so we write -1 as our x value and 0 as our y value like this (-1 , 0).

Answer:

slope #m=1#, #x# intercept is #-1# and #y# intercept is #-1#

Explanation:

This equation has the form
#y=mx+n#
where #m# is the slope and #n# the #y# intercept and #-n/m# the #x#intercept.
