Use the quadratic formula

\(y= -6x^2+42x -6\)

 

First, factor out a -6

\(y = -6(x^2 - 7x + 1)\)

 

Then, set the value in the parentheses equal to 0

\(x^2-7x+1=0\)

 

Now, use the quadratic formula to solve

\(y = {(7) \pm \sqrt{(7)^2-4(1)(1)} \over 2(1)}\)

\(y = {7 \pm 3 \sqrt5 \over 2}\)

\(y \approx 6.854, 0.146\)

 

Your zeros are approximately 6.854, and 0.146
