m2 - 8m = 0

Factor the expression on the left:

m (m - 8) = 0

If either factor is zero, then the two sides are equal:

m - 8 = 0

m = 8

m = 0

Not sure what you mean by "zero element". If an expression is equal to zero, and you can factor it, then at least one of the factors must be zero; this is often useful to solve an equation.

Zero is an acceptable value for a variable. As a general rule, if you solve an equation and get x equals zero, that's just what it is: zero. There is one solution. Example: 10x +1 = 5x +1 5x = 1 - 1 5x = 0 x = 0 There is one solution, zero. If you solve for x and get two solutions, such as 2 and 0, there are two answers. Later on, if you've studied domain and range (the numbers you can use for x so that the equation is still defined, (i.e. not 1/0, or the square root of negative 1), you may find that x = 0 does not always work. You need to check first, to see if zero is in the domain, before you say it's an answer.

Multiplication:- If: f/3 = 0.27 Then by multiplying both sides by 3: f = 0.81

So u have the function x2-4=0 Now because 4 is a squared number, its square root is 2 (x+2)(x-2)=0

Without knowing what "x" is, we cannot say what the answer will be. And without knowing the answer, we cannot solve for "x". Set x at zero, for example. Zero squared is zero, plus 6 time zero which is zero, minus 55. Your answer is then -55. Set x at one, for example. One squared is one, plus 6 times 1 which is six, minus 55. Your answer is then -48. Etc.
