# Math Help - How do i find the x and y intercepts for these functions???

1. ## How do i find the x and y intercepts for these functions???

1)-12x^2-4x+1

2)2(x-3)^2+18

Thanks to anyone who can help me!

So we have $y = -12x^2-4x+1
$

The $x$-intercept happens when $y = 0$, so let
$-12x^2-4x+1 = 0
$
and then solve for $x$.

The y-intercept happens when $x = 0$, so we let
$-12(0)^2-4(0)+1 = y$, and then we have $y$. Do the same to second.

3. wow i was trying to make it so much harder than it was. thanks alot!
