Which points represent the zeros of the function f(x) = (x² + 2x − 8)(x − 6) ?
Zeros are the values of x that make y equal to zero.
Set f(x) equal to zero and solve for x. (x² + 2x  8)(x  6) = 0 {set f(x) equal to zero} (x + 4)(x  2)(x  6) = 0 {factored x² + 2x  8 into two binomials} x + 4 = 0 or x  2 = 0 or x  6 = 0 {set each factor equal to zero} x = 4 or x = 2 or x = 6 {solved each equation for x} The points would be (4,0) , (2,0) , and (6,0).
