A zero has a multiplicity, which refers to the number of times that its associated factor appears in the polynomial. For instance, the quadratic (x + 3)(x 2) has the zeroes x = 3 and x = 2, each occuring once.

Multiplicity (mathematics) In mathematics, the multiplicity of a member of a multiset is the number of times it appears in the multiset. For example, the number of times a given polynomial equation has a root at a given point is the multiplicity of that root.

Polynomials do not have multiplicity , but their 0s do. so x^2 or (x-0)^2 has a 0 at x=0 and has multiplicity 2 since it is brought to the second power. It is worth noting that complex 0s must have even multiplicitys. This is because in a polynomial there are no imaginary numbers.
