**To find zeros, set the polynomial equal to zero. Zeros of a polynomial function,**

such as f(x) = x(x² + 4x - 12), indicate the x-intercepts of the function.

At the x-intercept, y is equal to zero. Remember, f(x) is the y value.

such as f(x) = x(x² + 4x - 12), indicate the x-intercepts of the function.

At the x-intercept, y is equal to zero. Remember, f(x) is the y value.

x(x² + 4x - 12) = 0 {set the polynomial equal to zero}

x(x + 6)(x - 2) = 0 {factored the trinomial, in parentheses, into two binomials}

x = 0 or x + 6 = 0 or x - 2 = 0 {set each factor equal to zero}

x = 0 or x = -6 or x = 2 {solved each equation for x}

**B.) -6, E.) 0, and F.) 2**
