How would you solve the equation $$4(3-q){(2+q)}^{2}=0$$?

Below is the solution.

$4(3-q){(2+q)}^{2}=0$

 1 Solve for $$q$$.1 Ask: When will $$(3-q)(2+q)$$ equal zero?When $$3-q=0$$ or $$2+q=0$$2 Solve each of the 2 equations above.$q=3,-2$To get access to all 'How?' and 'Why?' steps, join Cymath Plus!$q=3,-2$Doneq=3,-2
