OpenStudy (anonymous):

it crosses the x axis when f(x) equals zero. you can find it by setting f(x) to zero and determining what x must be to make f(x) equal 0.

OpenStudy (anonymous):

It will intersect the x-axis when y=0. Solve 0=14x^2 for x; that is your answer.

OpenStudy (anonymous):

oh I picked a bad one to try out for my purposes... thankyou for the explanation

OpenStudy (anonymous):

you can use the quadratic formula. or just set y equal to 0 and solve for x.

that wolfram is super cool!
