Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1rewrite the equation so that you have \[b^3  9b^2 + 20b = 0\] now take b as a common factor \[b(b^2  9b + 20) = 0\] factor the quadratic in the brackets... you need the factors of 20 than add to 9.... they are both negatives... then you should be able to find the solutions.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1well you'll have \[b(b 5)(b4) = 0\] so the solutions are b = 0, 4, 5
