# How do you graph x=-5 using intercepts?

Jan 9, 2018

See a solution process below:

#### Explanation:

The equation $x = - 5$ represents a vertical line.

This means for each and every value of $y$ then $x$ is equal to $- 5$

Therefore, the $x$-intercept when $y$ equals $0$ is: $- 5$ or $\left(- 5 , 0\right)$

Because the value of $x$ is also $- 5$ it will never equal $0$ therefore there is no $y$-intercept.

We can graph the lines as:

graph{((x+5)^2+y^2-0.025)(0.000001y + 100000x+500000) = 0 [-10, 10, - 5, 5]}
