# How do you graph x=-10 using intercepts?

May 23, 2017

$x = - 10$ is a vertical line.

It has one intercept (an x-intercept) at $x = - 10$.

Draw this intercept on the graph (at the point $\left(- 10 , 0\right)$), as shown below.

We know that the line passes through this point. We also know that the line is vertical because it is of the form $x = a$. So, all we have to do is draw a vertical line through the point we just drew (shown above).

The graph shown above is the graph of $x = - 10$.
