    To find the intercepts of the function f(x), then you have to put in f(0), and solve it. And to find the intercepts of x, then you have to put x6-2x4-3x2 = 0 and solve x

    \[\large\rm f(x)=x^6−2x^4−3x^2\]So to find your x-intercepts, this is when our function intercepts/crosses the x-axis. This happens, as Tommy indicated, when y=0.\[\large\rm 0=x^6−2x^4−3x^2\]Solve for x! \c:/

    Start by pulling the greatest common factor out of each term. They all share something in common.
