=graph{x=y [-10, 10, -5, 5]}

#### Explanation:

make a table in two columns, first column for x values

second column for y values

then choose values for x and substitute it in the equation to find y value

like:

x | y

0 | 0

1 | 1

2 | 2

3 | 3

-1 | -1

here they are equivalent because of x = y but in other equations they will be different.

Then just plot them in the coordinate system and connect the point and you will get the graph of the equation

graph{x = y [-10, 10, -5, 5]}
