Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If you have your equation in fully factored form (you do) then each variable factor represents a 0 where the power of the factor is the multiplicity. So in this example what are your variable factors?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Not quite. Notice that (x+4) = 0 when x = 4. And (x7) = 0 when x = 7

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The multiplicity would be any exponent on the factor. Recall that if a factor has no exponent it's assumed to be raised to the first power. So would have a multiplicity of 1, while a factor squared would be multiplicity 2, etc.
