The linear function f(x) has a slope of -7 and intersects the y-axis at the point (0, 56).

If g(x) = -7x – 14, which statement is true?

A.

The function g(x) intersects the x-axis closer to zero than the function f(x).

B.

The function f(x) intersects the x-axis closer to zero than the function g(x).

C.

The functions f(x) and g(x) do not intersect the x-axis.
