find the xintercepts of
y=3x^26x by factoring
y = 3x^2  6x
Factor out 3x:
y = 3x(x  2)
Set each factor equal to 0:
3x = 0; x = 0
x  2 = 0; x = 2
Those are your xintercepts.
I hope this will help.

6y  y^22724 well it should simplify to (6y)/(y^1) which then changes to y(6y) which then equals y(6y)=0 then you set both parts equal to zero and solve for xero y=0 and/or (6y)=0 so y=0 or y=6 Did you mean for this …

I need to find the value of x. 9x^3 + 9x = 30x^2 It's confusing because apparently I have to do 9x^3 + 9x and then add the + 30x^2 to it, and then make it equal 0, so it ends up like this: 9x^3 + 9x + 30x^2 = 0 And afterward, I would …
