Assuming that I only have access to the plot and not to the function that was used to generate it, how can I get the coordinates of the x-intercept of this plot?

    $\begingroup$ Please make precise a few points. First, what do you mean by "having access to the plot". Do you have the plot in the form of an image? Say, a pdf file with the image? Or something else? Second, please make it more precise, what do you mean under "x-intercept"? Do you mean the value of x close to 6.3, where the plot ends up, or something else? $\endgroup$ – Alexei Boulbitch Feb 13 '19 at 13:59
  • $\begingroup$ I have the plot as an image only. The x-intercepts are all those points where their y-coordinate is equal to 0. I would like to get their x-coordinates. $\endgroup$ – user3318424 Feb 13 '19 at 14:20
  • $\begingroup$ In this case, there is a way, if you agree that the points of the plot you will obtain with a certain approximation. Some time ago I published a function entitled "copyCurve" that can help you. You find it here: mathematica.stackexchange.com/questions/44355/… $\endgroup$ – Alexei Boulbitch Feb 13 '19 at 14:38
