    Question says that if x=2 and y=1 then find the slope and y-intercept.

    If x=2 and y=1 means point (2,1) then there can be several solutions for slope and y-intercept.

    But if x=2 and y=1 are separate lines then we can find unique solutions.

    ——-

    Calculation for line x=2.

    We know that any equation of type x=k is a vertical line having slope undefined.

    Hence slope = undefined.

    Since it is vertical line so there will be NO y-intercept.

    Calculation for line y=1.

    We know that any equation of type y=k is a horizontal line having slope zero.

    Hence slope = 0.

    Since it is horizontal line so y-intercept=1
