 Question 292213: Find x- and the y- intercept of . Here's what I've got so far: y-int: y=3(0)^2 + 5(0) - 2 so y=0+0-2 so y+-2 and for the x-int: 0=3x^2+5x-2 here's where I get lost. Do I add 2 to each side and then try to square out the remaining components? If so, how do I go about that? Because I'm confused at this step. Any help is appreciated, thank you!Answer by ankor@dixie-net.com(16523)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Find x- and the y- intercept of y=3x%5E2%2B5x-2. Here's what I've got so far: y-int: y=3(0)^2 + 5(0) - 2 so y=0+0-2 so y+-2 and for the x-int: 0=3x^2+5x-2 here's where I get lost. x intercepts occurs when y = 0 3x^2 + 5x - 2 = 0 This can be factored to (3x - 1)(x + 2) = 0 Two solutions which are the x intercepts 3x = 1 x = and x = -2
