  1. The y-intercept is where it crosses the x-axis (where x = 0). So, just set x to be 0 and solve for y, and that gives you your y intercept. the same is true for the x-intercept (where y = 0)

    I am practicing finding y and x intercepts of a parabola. My equation is y = x^2 - 2x - 3 My y intercept is (0 , -3) When I factor the equation I get (x + 1)(x -3) so my x intercepts would be (-1 , 0) and (3, 0) However, when I

    If a graph of a quadratic function can have 0, 1 or 2 x-intercepts. How can you predict the number of x-intercepts without drawing the graph or (completely) solving the related equation? Suppose that the graph of f(x) = ax^2+bx+c
