## Homework Statement

x = x(8-2x)

## Homework Equations

x = x(8-2x)

## The Attempt at a Solution

**My Solution**

x = x(8-2x)

1 = 8 - 2x

2x = 7

x = 7/2

**Provided Solution**

x = x(8-2x)

x = 8x - 2x^2

2x^2 -7x = 0

x(2x - 7) =

x = 0 / x = 7/2

Is my approach wrong?

Is x=0 always a possible answer, in addition to the found solution, so, should I have simply included x=0 in my solution?

Thanks!
