$\text{see explanation}$

#### Explanation:

$\text{one way is to find the intercepts, that is where the graph}$
$\text{crosses the x and y axes}$

• " let x = 0, in the equation for y-intercept"

• " let y = 0, in the equation for x-intercept"

$x = 0 \Rightarrow y = 0 - 1 \Rightarrow y = - 1 \leftarrow \textcolor{red}{\text{y-intercept}}$

$y = 0 \Rightarrow x - 1 = 0 \Rightarrow x = 1 \leftarrow \textcolor{red}{\text{x-intercept}}$

$\text{plot the points "(0,-1)" and } \left(1 , 0\right)$

$\text{draw a straight line through them for graph}$
graph{(y-x+1)((x-0)^2+(y+1)^2-0.04)((x-1)^2+(y-0)^2-0.04)=0 [-10, 10, -5, 5]}
