**Graphic Interpretation of the number of Zeros of a Polynomial**

The zero of a polynomial, , (if it exists) is the *x*-coordinate of the point where the graph of *y* = *p*(*x*) intersects the *x*-axis.

**Example 1:**

In the above graph, the graph intersects the *x*-axis at only one point.

The number of zeroes of the corresponding polynomial is 1.

**Example 2:**

In the above graph, the graph intersects the *x*-axis at exactly two points.

The number of zeroes of the corresponding polynomial is 2.

**Ex…**
