Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so intercept point on yaxis are (0,0),(8,0) and (4,0) and when you plug in x=0 you get y=0 so that is an intecept point on x axis (the origin)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0first x was factored out of the three terms since that is the GCF second the trinomial was factored look at your last term 32 what two numbers can you multiply to get 32 but when you add give you 12 (8)(4) = 32 8+4=12
