Polynomial: is an expression of finite length constructed from variables (also known as indeterminates) and constants, using only the operations of addition, subtraction, multiplication, and non-negative, whole-number exponents.
Zero Product Property: states that if ab = 0, then either a = 0 or b = 0 (or both). A product of factors is zero if and only if one or more of the factors is zero.
1.) (x - 2) ( x + 5) = 0
2.) (4a2 + a) = 0
3.) (x - 5) (2x + 7) (3x - 4) = 0
