Answer:

#X#-intercept=#-5#.

#Y#-intercept undefined.

Explanation:

Let us remember that the X-intercept of a given line is the Ordinate (i.e., the X-co-ordinate) of the pt. of intersection of the line with the X-axis.

The given line will intersect with the X-axis in the pt.#(-5,0)#

Hence, X-intercept=#-5#

We also note that the given line is a vertical line, i.e., #||# to #Y-#axis, so, it will not intersect with #Y#-axis, making its #Y#-intercept undefined.
