 If you enter this example of a polynomial in Wolfram Alpha, you get the roots to be 1 and 3, but how can I get a read-out of the multiplicity of each root. Evidently, in this case it is 3 for x = 1 and 2 for x = 3.

 Hi,you might want to go to the open cloud:https://sandbox.open.wolframcloud.com/and type in: Roots[7 (x - 1)^3 (x - 3)^2 == 0, x] The out put will be:Cheers,Marco
