No x intercepts

#### Explanation:

Assumption: The question has -.3 which is assumed to mean - 0.3

The y intercept is at

'~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The x intercepts are at

Add 2 to both sides

Divide both sides by

But

Multiply both sides by

Square root both sides

As we are trying to take the square root of a negative number it means that the graph does not cross the x-axis. So there are no x intercepts
