According to the graph the x-intercepts are: $(3,0)$ and $(-15,0)$

Work Step by Step

$f(x)=0$ $\frac{7}{10}(x^2+12x-45)=0~~$ (Divide both sides by $\frac{7}{10}$) $x^2+12x-45=0~~$ ($a=1,b=12,c=-45$): $x=\frac{-12±\sqrt {12^2-4(1)(-45)}}{2(1)}=\frac{-12±\sqrt {324}}{2}=\frac{-12±18}{2}=-6±9$ $x=3$ or $x=-15$ x-intercepts: $(3,0)$ and $(-15,0)$
