    Today in Algebra II we were factoring and my teacher gave us an equation:
    3x^4=48x^2. She said that to get all the posible answers you have to factor the equation. I however contend that zero is an understood answer and that factoring the equation is a waste of time. Does anyone agree with me? The answers to this equation are 0 and +/- 4.

    I didn't post in the academic subforum because this isn't really an academic question (it should be able to be answered useing common sense) and is purely for my own knowledge.
Which accompaniment is best?
