## Finding Intercepts of Rational Fractions

We can get the x x x intercepts by setting y = 0: (x âˆ’ 1) (x âˆ’ 2) (x âˆ’ 3) x (x âˆ’ 1) (x + 1) = 0 y=0: \dfrac{(x-1)(x-2)(x-3)}{x(x-1)(x+1)} = 0 y = 0: x (x âˆ’ 1) (x + 1) (x âˆ’ 1) (x âˆ’ 2) (x âˆ’ 3) = 0.

## How to find the x and y-intercepts of a rational function?

The x-intercept (s) of a function occurs when y = 0 and the y-intercept (s) of a function occurs when x = 0. To find the y-intercept of a function, we plug in zero for x and solve
