If you mean: y = -2x+5 then the slope is -2 and the y intercept is 5

### How do you graph if there is no slope?

A line with no slope is a vertical line. The slope is undefined,
and cannot be represented by a real number.
A horizontal line has a slope, but the slope is zero.
Consider the "y = mx + b" form of the straight line equation.
For a horizontal line the slope is zero, so y = 0x +b => y = b,
which is the equation of a horizontal line. For a vertical line,
there is no slope, so you can't substitute for m; the equation
can't be written in the form y = mx +b. The equation of a vertical
line has the form x = a.
