Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0To find points of intersection just set p(x) = g(x) and solve for x. The point will represent where the two graphs cross each other.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[x^34x^2+3x+1 = x^22x4 \] \[\rightarrow x^3  5x^2 + 5x + 5 = 0\] Factor this and we get \[\rightarrow x=−0.598675\] Plug this into p(x) or g(x) to get y value and that is your point of intersection.
