This equation is of the form a*b = 0. This can be split up as a = 0 or b = 0, So: solve for x: x8=0 or 3x+4=0

What is the solution of x8=0?

No... You add 8 to both sides of the equation to get x = 8. So 8 is a solution. Now do 3x + 4 = 0

OK, now the solution of 3x+4 = 0

No, if 3x+4=0, you can see that 3x=4. Why? Because 4+4=0. So the last step is to find the solution of 3x=4.

Oh yeah duh, so then it would \[\frac{ 3 }{ 4}\]
