$x\text{-intercept: none} \\y\text{-intercept: } (0,5) \\\text{Graph: horizontal line through (0,5)}$

Work Step by Step

$\bf{\text{Solution Outline:}}$ Analyze the given equation, $ y=5 ,$ to find the intercepts and its graph. $\bf{\text{Solution Details:}}$ Equations of the form $y=b,$ are horizontal lines passing through the point $(0,b).$ Hence, there is no $x$-intercept and the $y$-intercept is $b.$ The given equation has the following characteristics: \begin{array}{l}\require{cancel} x\text{-intercept: none} \\y\text{-intercept: } (0,5) \\\text{Graph: horizontal line through (0,5)} .\end{array}
