It's difficult to know exactly what you're asking because of the way you worded your question. But if you're asking how to graph a line who's equation is X = 5 that's pretty simple. What this means is that only the Y-values would be changing. So Y can be anything while X will remain at 5. So it would be a vertical line that crosses the X-axis at 5.

Note: To save space, my line only shows positive Y-values. But the line will also extend into negative Y-values. So the line is infinite in length with arrows on the top and bottom.

there must be more to the equation than this - what is the full equation?

Here are the others: Y=-3x-5

Y=3/5x and y=-4x - Log in to reply to the answers

Since there is no y, it means for all values of y, x = 5 always.

This is represented by a vertical line along +5 on x-axis
