List those five x-intercepts in ordered pair form: ____________________________________________________ 3. What’s exactly the same for all five of your points? ____________________________________________________ 4. Complete the sentence: An x-intercept will always have a ______coordinate of _______. 5. Complete the sentence: To find x-intercepts, we substitute the number ________ in for every y and then solve for x. 6. Using #5, and without the aid of a graphing calculator, find the xintercept(s) for the following functions: (Hint: Factor!)

7. If you had to explain an x-intercept to a calculus professor, what would you say? For full credit, your response should contain the terms y-coordinate, zero, and x-axis.

Part II: Factors 1. 2. 3. 4. Factor right side of the equation: Graph in your calculator and then copy the graph. How are the factors in #1 related to the x-intercepts on your graph? Using #5 from Part I, explain why factors and x-intercepts have this opposite relationship.

5. If a function has an x-intercept at , then the function must have a factor of _____________. 6. If a function has an x-intercept at , then the function must have a factor of ________________. 7. If a function has factor of , it must have an x-intercept at ____________. 8. If a function has a factor of , it must have an x-intercept at ___________. 9. What are the x-intercepts of the function ? 10. Graph the function . Use the x-intercepts to factor . 11. We know that if a function has a factor of , it has an x-intercept at . Assume a function has a factor of . What x-intercept would this correspond to? (Hint: Set and solve.) 12. What are the x-intercepts of the function ? 13. Given that and are factors of , what is the third factor? 14. Given that and are factors of , what factors are left? 15. Given that and are factors of , what is the third factor?
