# Chapter 5 Polynomials and Polynomial Functions - 5.4 Factor and Solve Polynomial Equations - 5.4 Exercises - Skill Practice - Page 357: 33

$$s=0,\:s=-\frac{5}{3},\:s=\frac{5}{3}$$

#### Work Step by Step

Solving the equation by factoring and setting the factors equal to zero, we find: $$18s^3-50s=0 \\ 2s\left(3s+5\right)\left(3s-5\right)=0 \\ s=0,\:s=-\frac{5}{3},\:s=\frac{5}{3}$$
