# Math Help - Getting to the root of the equation

1. ## Getting to the root of the equation

The equation has two roots. Find the smaller and larger one?

so I came up with 2x2e-5x(3-3x)=0

Just not sure where to go from here?

You need to use the zero product principle. This would give

$2x^2=0 \quad e^{-5x}=0 \quad 3-3x=0$

Only two of these equations have solutions.
