The x intercept is # - 2/5# There is no y intercept. .


This line is a vertical line. Its slope is undefined. It crosses the x axis at # -2/5# because that is the value of x for the entire line.

As the line is a vertical line it is parallel to the y axis which is also vertical. This means the lines will never meet. There is no y intercept.
