because there are no squares or higher powers you will have multiplicy of 1 for all the solutions

Multiplicity is how many times something goes into a function. So if it was something like \[x^{3} \] the multiplicity would be 3 (odd). It's the same thing for something like (x3)\[(x3)^{7}\] that would have a multiplicity of 7 (odd). Hope that helps!
