Answer:

See a solution explanation below:

Explanation:

The equation #x = 8# represents a vertical line where for every value of #y#, #x# equals #8#.

The x-intercept for this line is #8# or #(8, 0)#. Because #x# is equal to #8# for every value of #y#, it is therefore equal to #8# when #y# is #0#.

There is no y-intercept for this line. Because it is a vertical line there is no time when #x# is equal to #0# therefore there is no y-intercept.
