    Real roots means x-axis intercepts

    So is it 2 and where line y= x+16 intercepts the x axis?

    adnanchowdhury, bad drawing, it should only touch the x-axis

    and yes, it is 2 and -16

    Are you sure? because when x=0, y=16?

    does not make a difference, you want y = 0

    and y = 0. when x = -16

    sorry, just read the question again, the roots are the solutions to the question, which means the intercepts between the 2 graphs: |dw:1334914789804:dw|

    clearly one of the roots is at x = 0 and the only other root is where the line extends to meet the curve

    okay, so there are 3 roots?

    (x-2)^4 = x+16 so x^4 -8x^3+24x^2-32x+16 = x-16

    16 cancels, and you can factor out x, so one solution is at x = 0

    now, x^3 -8x^2+24x-32 = 0

    this is a third order polynomial with one x-intercept, so the solution to this equation, and x = 0, are the only 2 roots
