A vertical line on a graph has an infinite slope, and no y-intercept.

If x is horizontal distance in your graph, and y is vertical distance, the vertical intercept is what y is when x=0. For example, if x is the time since you started a business, and y is how much your business is worth, the vertical intercept is how much money you started off with.

There is not any. A vertical line is parallel to the y-axis so they cannot meet or they are the same line. In either case there is no intercept.

Vertical offset.

Yes.

A vertical line on a graph has infinite slope and no y-intercept. Its equation is [ x = a number ]. The number is the line's x-intercept.

No because a line can be a vertical line so say you have the equation x=5. Then a vertical line would pass through the x intercept 5 and be vertical thus not having a y intercept. All horizontal lines have a y intercept

A vertical line on a graph has an infinite slope, and no y-intercept.

A vertical line does not have a slope - negative or positive. It is not defined. A vertical line has no y intercept and, if its equation is x = c (for some number c), then the x-intercept is (c, 0).

If x is horizontal distance in your graph, and y is vertical distance, the vertical intercept is what y is when x=0. For example, if x is the time since you started a business, and y is how much your business is worth, the vertical intercept is how much money you started off with.

slope: y=mx+b the y-intercept is vertical

X = 3 A vertical line not having a Y intercept.

Vertical offset.

The slope of a vertical line is undefined and so there cannot be a slope-intercept form of the equation.
