The factors of a polynomial are (x + 3)(x - 2)(x + 7). The polynomial has been graphed. How do the zeros relate to the factors?

The zeros of the graph are the values of "x" that result in any one of the binomials equaling zero. (-3) results in (x+3) being zero. (2) results in (x-2) being zero. And, (-7) results in (x+7) being zero.

Hope that helps.
