Need Help Finding Points of Intersection

  1. Jan 17, 2010 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    y=x-x^3 y=0 Must find intersection points by way of the x axis

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I know you have to set them equal to each other i just do not know what to do from there.
