    If the question is this
    <br />
f(x) = y = \pi x^5 + \pi x^4 + \sqrt {3}x + 1<br />
    .....
    put x = 0
    you get value of y intercept
    &
    put y =0
    and get x intercept
    I think you can do it from there

    The polynomial looks ugly but I had no idea it was simple to solve.
