Answer:

See a solution process below:

Explanation:

The equation #x = 5# is the equation of a vertical line where for each and every value of #y#, #x# is equal to #5#

By definition the slope of a vertical line is undefined.

Because the value of #x# will never be #0# there is no #y#-intercept.

However, for #y = 0#, #x# will equal #5# so the #x#-intercept is at #(5, 0)#

So we can graph this as a vertical line crossing the #x#-axis at #5#

graph{y-1000x+5000= 0}
