Hey guys, new member here. I've decided to join this forum since I am a current Calculus student, and will be taking Physics next semester. Anyways, I do have a question about one of my homework problems.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Consider the function: f(x) = -2x^(3) + 6x^(2) - 3. Find its intercepts (there is more to this problem, but this is all I'm concerned about)

2. Relevant equations

I understand finding x intercepts requires setting the equation equal to 0, but that doesn't help me in this case.

3. The attempt at a solution

I've tried different things, from factoring to polynomial division, but I can't find the answer. Anyways, the answers are (-0.64, 0), (0.83, 0), and (2.81, 0). I just need help on how to find these intercepts.
