Answer:

#x = - 4, - 2#

Explanation:

We have: #(x + 4)^(3) (x + 2)^(2) = 0#

Using the null factor law:

#Rightarrow (x + 4)^(3) = 0#

#Rightarrow x + 4 = 0#

#therefore x = - 4#

#or#

#Rightarrow (x + 2)^(2) = 0#

#Rightarrow x + 2 = 0#

#therefore x = - 2#

Therefore, the solutions to the equation are #x = - 4# and #x = - 2#.
