#### Answer

x-intercept: $(-5, 0)$ y-intercept: none

#### Work Step by Step

RECALL: (1) The graph of the equation $x=h$ where $h$ is a real number is a vertical line. (2) The x-intercept of the vertical line $x=h$ is $(h, 0)$. (3) A vertical line has an x-intercept but no y-intercept. The graph of the given equation is a vertical line whose x-intercept is $(-5, 0)$. The graph has no y-intercept.
