## Main Question or Discussion Point

[tex]0 = \prod_{n=a}^b (x-n)[/tex]

I've not taken any calculus classes yet (I'm learning this stuff on my own because I need it for things that I'm working on), so this may be an elementary question... But is it possible to solve for a variable "within" a product series like this?

In the above example, is it possible to solve for x? If so, how, and if not, why?

Thanks in advance for your help.
