I know Matlab has "factor" to factor an equation, but is there any function or any way to do this in Matlab: Input: an equation ex: x^3 8*x^2 + 20*x 16 Output: +the equation factored, ex: (x  4)*(x  2)^2 +Solve the equation, ex: x1=4; x2=2 +Most important: show the rank of each root (the power of each inner expression) , ex: root 1 = 4 has rank = 1; root 2 = 2 has rank = 2
