x-intercept transformation


What happens to the x-intercept of y = ax+b when you reverse the leading coefficient, a, and the constant, b? What happens to the x-intercept(s) of y= ax2 +bx +c when you reverse the leading coefficient, a, and the constant, c? What happens to the x-intercepts of a polynomial in the form y = axn+ bxn-1 +cxn-2+...+z when you reverse the leading coefficient, a, and the constant, z?
