The best way to go here is simply make y=0 and solve for x.

i.e. $\displaystyle \displaystyle 0 = \frac{x^2}{275} \implies 275\times 0 = x^2 \implies 0=x^2 \implies \sqrt{0} = x \implies x= 0$

For a better unstanding ask yourself, what does the factor of $\displaystyle \frac{1}{275}$ have on the function of $\displaystyle y = x^2$ . Do the two functions have the same zeros? - Nov 5th 2010, 12:52 PMaa751
I thought so to0 , i set the equation to 0 and got x=0 I just hoped I was wrong lol Cuase i Needed the zeros for integration=/ I was trying to find a volume of a darn barrel. lol
