Toolbox:
Equation of a line parallel to x axis is y = constant.
Equation of a line parallel to y axis is x = a constant.
Step 1 :
http://clay6.com/mpaimg/1_graph.jpg
It is clear from the graph that the leg BC of the triangle is parallel to the x - axis.
Hence its equation is y=1
The perpendicular leg AC is parallel to y axis.
Hence its equation is x = 1
Hence the equation of the legs AC and BC are
x = 1 and y = 1 respectively.
