In this tutorial the instructor shows how to find the x and y intercepts of rational functions. Finding the intercepts of a rational function is similar to finding the intercepts of other normal equations. You can find the x intercept of the equation by setting the value of y to zero and solving the equation. Similarly you can solve the y intercept by setting the value of x to zero and solving the equation. Now while solving this rational function for intercepts if you face a situation where the value in the denominator is zero it implies that there is no intercept in that case as dividing something by zero is indeterminate. This video shows how to solve x and y intercepts of rational functions.
