Question:

Find the roots of this polynomial:
$5848_w90_h18.png$ = 0

A x = 1 or 8
Explaination

Questions that say, "solve the given polynomial" and "find the roots of the polynomial" mean the same thing. The first step would be to factor out the polynomial: $6072_w224_h20.png$ Then, equate each factor to zero. (x-1) = 0 x=1 and (x-8) = 0 x=8 The roots of the given polynomial are x=1 or x=8
