    hint :To get x-intercept put y=0 in the equation to get y-intercept put x=0 in the equation

    x^2+2.2x+1.21 = 0 this can be factored, and -1 ,-1.2 is incorrect

    those are correct, just be accurate -1,-1.21 (instead of just -1.2)

    now for 2nd eq., put x=0 for y-int., y-x^2=7x y=0 so y-intercept = (0,0) put y=0 for x-int y-x^2=7x 0=x^2+7x i believe u can solve this
