    @odehye We have to find the solution of this \[2x^3-7x^2-15x=0\] Take x common \[x(2x^2-7x-15)=0\] Now we have \[x=0\ \text{or}\ (2x^2-7x-15)=0\] So one root is zero Can you solve this quadratic equation to find the other two roots ? \[2x^2-7x-15=0\]

    Can you solve the quadratic to find the other two roots?

    The easiest way is to us the quadratic formual to solve for zeros.
