Lesson Summary:

The lesson teaches how to use the zero product property to solve for intercepts. By setting each equation equal to zero, finding x intercepts becomes easy. Solving for x, one can find the intercepts of the graph.

Lesson Description:

How to use the zero product property to solve for the intercepts

I show how to solve math problems online during live instruction in class. This is my way of providing free tutoring for the students in my class and for students anywhere in the world. Every video is a short clip that shows exactly how to solve math problems step by step. The problems are done in real time and in front of a regular classroom. These videos are intended to help you learn how to solve math problems, review how to solve a math problems, study for a test, or finish your homework. I post all of my videos on YouTube, but if you are looking for other ways to interact with me and my videos you can follow me on the following pages through My Blog, Twitter, or Facebook.

    This video completes the work from a previous video. In the previous video, the instructor shows how to factor a quadratic function using three different methods. In this short video, he demonstrates how to find the x-intercepts using the factored form of the function.
