    y-intercepts ... sub in 0 for x and evaluate.

    x-intercepts ... set each factor = 0 and solve for x.

    As posted, you can't!

    Was there perhaps an "=y" somewhere in the original exercise? If so, then follow the instructions provided earlier for finding the intercepts. Otherwise, please consult with your instructor regarding clarification. Thank you!
