Solve the equation for r:

3r³ + 12r² = 36r

3r³ + 12r² = 36r

3r³ + 12r² = 36r

3r³ + 12r² - 36r = 0 {subtracted 36r from both sides}

3r(r² + 4r - 12) = 0 {factored 3r out}

3r(r + 6)(r - 2) = 0 {factored into two binomials}

3r = 0 or r + 6 = 0 or r - 2 = 0 {set each factor equal to 0}

**r = 0 or r = - 6 or r = 2**{solved each equation for r}
