    In order for f(x) to be zero, one of the factors must be zero (the only way for a product to be zero is if one or more of the factors is zero). So, to find the roots(zeros), set each factor equal to zero and solve for \(x\). \[x-9=0\]\[x+12=0\]\[x-24=0\]The solutions to these equations are the roots(zeros) of the function.
