You can put this solution on YOUR website! Since is the only solution (and we're dealing with a quadratic), this means that the solution occurs twice. So this means that the solutions are
or Subtract 8 from both sides for each equation
Combine the equations using the zero product property
So the equation has the solution (with a multiplicity of 2)
