An x-intercept is the point where a parabola crosses the x-axis. This point is also known as a zero, root, or solution. Some quadratic functions cross the x-axis twice. Some quadratic functions never cross the x-axis. This tutorial focuses on the parabola that crosses the x-axis once -- the quadratic function with only 1 solution.
