    A polynomial function can be written as (x - 2)(x - 3)(x + 5). What are the x-intercepts of the graph of this function?

    the x-intercept means y = 0 y = f(x) when y = 0 then (x-2)(x-3)(x +5) =0

    in order to multiply factors and get a product of zero then at least one factor must be zero.
