Answer:

The slope is "undefined"
There is no y-intercept

Explanation:

#x=-2# is a vertical line

slope is defined as #(Delta y)/(Delta x)#
but since the value of #x# does not change, #Delta x = 0#
and any attempt to evaluate the slope is an attempt to divide by #0#

This line does not cross the Y-axis
and therefore there is no y-intercept.
