if y is 0 then we have \[f(x+f(0))=f(x)+0-1 \\ f(x+1)=f(x)-1 \text{ since } f(0)=1 \\ \text{ now enter in } x \text{ as -1 }\]

I'm thinking that since functions have only one output for any given input, and we are dealing with a function f that can take an argument x and y, that f is a bijection. Therefore, for every input there is exactly one output and for every output there is exactly one input. So f(y) must equal to x: $$ f(x+f(y))=f(x)+y-1\\ f(x+x)=f(x)+f(x)-1\\ f(2x)=2f(x)-1\\ f(x)=\cfrac{f(2x)+1}{2} $$ f(0)=1 Let's check $$ f(0)=1=\cfrac{f(2\cdot 0)+1}{2}=\cfrac{f(0)+1}{2}=1\\ $$ So $$ f(-1)=\cfrac{f(-2)+1}{2}\\ f(-2)=\cfrac{f(-4)+1}{2}\\ ... $$ Not sure if this is the right path, but we can probably find a solution to the recursive equation...

like we know f(0)=1 so wanted to try to use that and then we knew we wanted to find f(-1) so I play with some 0's and -1's or what would the insides of f( ) 0 or -1 but I played with f(0) first since I knew its output
