 Question 182139: I would appreciate the help with this problem, Given A. Find the x- and y-intercepts of the graph of the equation. B. Test the equation for symmetry with respect to the x-axis, the y-axis, and the origin. I would be thankful for any help on atleast part A. I think that the y-intercept is undefined. ThanksAnswer by ankor@dixie-net.com(15746)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Given y =(x^2-4)/x A. Find the x- and y-intercepts of the graph of the equation. You're right y intercept occurs when x = 0, that can't be (/0) so undefined Find the x intercept: (x^2 - 4)/x = 0 multiply both sides by x x^2 - 4 = 0 difference of squares, factors to: (x-2)(x+2) = 0 x = 2, -2 are the intercepts Looks like this B. Test the equation for symmetry with respect to the x-axis, the y-axis, and the origin. : It is symmetrical with respect to the origin
