### Example Question #3 : Graphing Exponential Functions

Find the -intercept(s) of .

**Possible Answers:**

and

and

**Correct answer:**

and

To find the -intercept(s) of , we need to set the numerator equal to zero and solve.

First, notice that can be factored into . Now set that equal to zero: .

Since we have two sets in parentheses, there are two separate values that can cause our equation to equal zero: one where and one where .

Solve for each value:

and

.

Therefore there are two -interecpts: and .
