I know this is probably part of algebra, but it's the beginning of my calculus class so that is why it is posted here. If I posted in the wrong place - I do apologize. Okay, so it's been awhile since I had algebra so this is probably going to be really simple but I'm just sitting here confusing myself. This is my problem:

-Figure 1.11 shows the amount of nicotine, N = f(t), in mg, in a person's bloodstream as a function of the time, t, in hours, since the person finished smoking a cigarette.-

It is asking me for the vertical & horizontal intercepts, which I have gathered is the same as x & y intercepts :roll: , and then it asks what each intercept represents.

And I understand it would probably be more helpful if I could post the graph but I can't. So if anyone can help that would be awesome! Thanks! :D
