In a http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bézier_curve" defined by p1, cp1, cp2, p2, is it possible to solve for X when Y is known? I can't figure out how to determine if the bezier curve intersects Y. I can conclude that the bezier curve does intersect if p1 and p2 are either side of Y. I can conclude that the bezier curve does not intersect if p1, cp1, cp2, and p2 all fall on one side of Y, but in the case that p1 and p2 fall on one side, and one or both cp1 and cp2 fall on the other side of Y, I don't know, it may or may not intersect. Additionally, it may intersect 1, 2, or 3 times. Beyond that, I don't know how to solve X when Y is know, or even if it is possible. Thanks for any advice.
