Well it appears that as i get higher in math, i lose the stuff i learned awhile ago. This type has me stumped for some reason.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

x^3 + X^5=0 Or another one X^3 + x^4=0

I can break them down to X^3(1+X^2)=0 or X^3(X +1)=0

I just can seem to solve these simple guys.
