**Unit 6 Lesson #1 Intercepts and Symmetry**

INTERCEPTS AND ZEROS To find the x-intercepts of y = f (x), set y = 0 and solve for x. x-intercepts correspond to the zeros of the function f(x) = x2 – x – 2 x2 – x – 2 = 0 (x + 1)(x – 2) = 0 (– 1, 0) (2, 0) x = –1 x = 2 To find the y-intercepts of y = f (x), set x = 0; the y-intercept is f (0). (0, – 2) f(0) = (0)2 – 0 – 2 = – 2
