#### Answer:

Zeroes, or x-intercepts, are **x = #4/5# and #-6/5#**

#### Explanation:

When a math problem asks to find the "zeroes" of the equation, it is asking for the x-intercepts of the equation. In other words, you must set the equation *equal to zero.*

Step 1: Set it equal to zero

Step 2: Move the equation to the left side by subtracting

You're left with:

Step 3: Factor!

Step 4: Set each side equal to zero.

Step 5: Solve until

Note: You can also double check by graphing and looking at the x-intercepts!
