## marcelie one year ago help please !!!! For the following exercises, find the x- or t-intercepts of the polynomial functions. help please !!! For the following exercises, find the x- or t-intercepts of the polynomial functions. f (x) = x6 − 2x4 − 3x2

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.
