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.

$$x-x^{3}=0$$
$$x(1-x^{2})=0$$
just factor and set each part =0
