Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[x^2yx^2+4y=0\] I need to find the x and y intercepts of this problem, but I'm not sure how to. I've tried replacing each variable with 0 to solve for the other variable, but I keep getting strange answers...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Can you show me what you got when you tried to find the xintercept?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[x^2y−x^2+4y=0\] I factored the equation... \[x^2(y1)+4y=0\] then I replaced y with 0... \[x^2((0)1)+4(0)=0\] solved it... \[x^2=0\] and squared... \[x=0\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Why do you think that is weird? Because that is the answer.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Also, you cannot factor that equation

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1actually, you just factored the first two terms so that's okay.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I just wasn't sure about the answer since I originally got a different answer and didn't know which was correct. Thanks for clarifying though. :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0By the way, you wouldn't happen to know anything about the symmetry of a function would you?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1When y=0, x=0. It is a point on the origin. (0,0)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So, the xint is 0 and a yint is 0

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I graphed the function earlier and that's what it showed as well

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I do not know anything about the symmetry of a function. That is another question you will have to ask.
