this can be factored to y = (x3)(x+1). xintercept > when y = 0. y = 0 when (x3) = 0 or when (x+1) = 0 so x = 1 and 3. the positive one is 3.

so its x=0, x=3? @Euler271

The curve crosses the xaxis at two points, with the xvalues being the solutions that make y = 0. The positive xintercept is at x = 3. The yvalue there is 0, so the fullyspecified coordinate would be (3,0), but the problem only asks for the x coordinate, which is simply 3.
