# How do you find the x and y intercept of x – y = 1?

Aug 9, 2017

$x$-intercept is $\left(1 , 0\right)$ and $y$-inercept is $\left(0 , - 1\right)$.

#### Explanation:

For any function, simple rule is that to find $x$-intercept put $y = 0$ and to find $y$-intercept put $x = 0$.

Hence for $x - y = 1$, $x$-intercept is given by $x - 0 = 1$ or $x = 1$ and $y$-intercept is given by $0 - y = 1$ or $y = - 1$.

Hence $x$-intercept is $\left(1 , 0\right)$ and $y$-inercept is $\left(0 , - 1\right)$.
