#### Explanation:

In the function y = x + a , a is a constant.

$\textcolor{\mathmr{and} a n \ge}{\text{Reminder}}$

$\textcolor{red}{| \overline{\underline{\textcolor{w h i t e}{\frac{a}{a}} \textcolor{b l a c k}{\frac{d}{\mathrm{dx}} \left(\text{constant}\right) = 0} \textcolor{w h i t e}{\frac{a}{a}} |}}}$

$\Rightarrow \frac{\mathrm{dy}}{\mathrm{dx}} = 1$
