if you have several numbers being multiplied give zero, it means at least one of the numbers must be zero

$2x (x - 1)^2 (2x + 3) = 0$

$\Rightarrow 2x = 0 \mbox { or } (x - 1)^2 = 0 \mbox { or } 2x + 3 = 0$

$\Rightarrow x = 0 \mbox { or } x = 1 \mbox { or } x = - \frac {3}{2}$

So there are three values of $x$ for which the above holds
