**"Zeros"**of a function are the

**x-intercepts**of the graph, also known as

**"roots"**or

**"solutions"**.

The x-intercepts shown in the graph are (-6,0) , (-4,0) , (2,0), and (6,0). However, not all are zeros of the function.

To solve the function, set f(x) equal to 0, and solve for x.

f(x) = (x² + 2x - 8)(x - 6)

(x² + 2x - 8)(x - 6) = 0 {set f(x) equal to 0}

(x + 4)(x - 2)(x - 6) = 0 {factored the quadratic trinomial into two binomials}

x + 4 = 0 or x - 2 = 0 or x - 6 = 0 {set each factor equal to 0}

x = -4 or x = 2 or x = 6 {solved each equation for x}

The zeros are (-4,0) , (2,0) , and (6,0)
