Where p(x) intersects the x-axis.
Substitute 0 for
, and solve for x.
You can factor and use the Zero Product Property once you write your equation.
(–6, 0) and (1, 0)
, find the intercepts of q(x) and compare the graphs of and .
Look at parts (a) and (b) to help find the intercepts.
What do you notice about the graphs? Are they related?
x-intercepts: (0, 0), (–5, 0)
y-intercept: (0, 0)
is 6 units lower than .
from . You should notice a relationship between your answers for parts (c) and (d).
