f(x)={8 x + 9}/(2 x + 7)(8 x + 6)
-Find the x and y intercepts.
-How would I go about finding the x and y intercepts in problems like this?

  • pre calc -

    y intercept is when x is zero
    x intercept is when y is zero.

    I will do the harder one:
    x intercept, set f(x)=0

    0=(8x+9)/( )( )

    the only way the right side is zero is if
    8x+9=0 or x= -9/8

  • pre calc -

    That is what I tried but it said I was wrong?
