First bring everything over to the same side of the =. This will make 16 become a negtive and 96 a positive. x^3  6x^216X+96

Then treat them as 2 different equation soo (x^3  6x^2) and (16x+96)

MaeganBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
Then simplfy each: (x^3  6x^2) = x^2(x  6) and (16x+96) = 16(x6) So your answer is (x6) & (X^216)

MaeganBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
Then simplfy them so (x6) becomes x6=0 Bring the 6 over x=6 And (x^216)=0 x^2=16 \[\sqrt{x}=\sqrt{16}\] x=4

youre just missing one more solution. instead of taking the x^216=0 and solving, you could have factored even further:\[x^216=0\iff (x4)(x+4)=0\iff x=4,x=4\]so overall you should have x= 6, 4, 4 as solutions.
