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?

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