The equation might look complex, but don't let it scare you! :) We find x-intercepts and y-intercepts of this function as we would normally in other functions.

For the x-intercepts, we let y=0 and solve for x:

we get x^2 + 0 -0 =64.

So, x^2=64.

Therefore, x = 8 or x=-8

So the x-intercepts are (-8,0) and (8,0)

For the y-intercepts, we let x=0 and solve for y:

we get 0+y^3-0=64

So y^3 = 64

y=4

The y-intercept is (0,4).
