I just want to check this is correct: Find the coordinates of the points on the curve f(x) = x^3 - 6x^2 + 7x Do i just differentiate it then multiply the x by 2 or is it more complicated than that?

Set $\displaystyle f(x) = 0$ to find the x-intercepts. It's y-intercept is 0. (If that is what you mean... I'm not sure what you're saying)

The coordinates of what? The answer to your literal question is $\displaystyle (x, f(x) )$, which is so trivial this can't possibly be your question. -Dan
