Find the zeros of the function algebraically

2. Relevant equations

f(x)=x/(9x^2-4)

and

f(x)=x^3-x

3. The attempt at a solution

i was gone for about a month and a half from the class because i had to move and im kinda rusty

ATTEMPT-

f(x)=x/(9x^2-4)

Multiplied by x

subtracted 9x^2

and added 4, which gave me.....

-9x^2+x+4=f(x) then i put it in a quadratic formula to find it and i got the wrong answer (i checked in the back of the book for the answer which was 0, i know im probly really wrong but i was away from the class a long time lol.

Second problem

f(x)=x^3-x

I honestly completely forgot how to solve for the zeros of a cubic function sorry :(
