### Example Question #1 : Identify Zeros, Factor And Graph Polynomials: Ccss.Math.Content.Hsa Apr.B.3

What are the -intercept(s) of the function?

Explanation:

To find the -intercept of a function, first recall that the -intercept represents the points where the graph of the function crosses the -axis. In other words where the function has a  value equal to zero.

One technique that can be used is factorization. In general form,

where,

and  are factors of  and when added together results in .
