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

    i.e. \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 \frac{1}{275} have on the function of y = x^2 . Do the two functions have the same zeros?
