Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1For finding x intercept, Put y = 0 And for finding y intercept, Put x = 0..

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So: for finding x intercept you will put y = 0 that is: \[x^2 + x  6 = 0\] Try to factor this equation and you will get two values of x..
