Answer:

See below

Explanation:

#f(x) =x:forall x in RR#

Let's think for a moment about what this means.
"#f# is function of #x# that is equal to the value #x# for all real numbers #x#"

The only way this is possible is if #f(x)# is a straight line through the origin with a slope of #1#.

In slope/intercept form: #y =1x +0#

We can visualise #f(x)# from the graph below.
