# How do you find the slope and y intercept for x=5?

The line "x=5" means that no matter what y is, x is going to be 5. Since the y-intercept is the point where x is 0, this line has no y-intercept.

Because this line is the collection of all points where x=5, it will run parallel to the y-axis (x=0), so it has a slope of 1/0, which is undefined (or technically $\pm \infty$).
