Answer:

#y=1,x=1#

Explanation:

Here is a graph of the equation:
graph{1-x [-10, 10, -5, 5]}

We can see the y-intercept is given where #x=0# and the x-intercept is given where #y=0#,

So if we set #y=0# we get:
#x+0=1 -> x=1#

And similarly, #x=0#
#0+y=1 -> y=1#

Thus we have our intercepts at:

#y=1,x=1#
