`x(x+6)(8-x) >= 0`
`1)==> x >= 0 and x + 6 >= 0 and 8-x >= 0`
`==> x>=0 and x>= -6 and x <= 8`
`==> x in [0,oo) nn [-6,oo) nn (-oo, 8]`
`==> x in [0,8]`
`2) => x <= 0 and x+6 <= 0 and (8-x) >= 0`
`==> x in (-oo,0] nn (-oo, -6] nn (-oo, 8]`
`==> x in (-oo,-6]`
`3) x <= 0 and x+6 >= 0 and (8-x) <= 0`
`==> x in (-oo,0] nn [-6,oo) nn [8,oo)`
`==> x in phi`
`4) x >= 0 and (x+6) <= 0 and (8-x) <= 0`
`==> x in [0. oo) nn (-oo, -6] nn [8, oo)`
`==> x in phi`
Then, from (1) and (2) we conclude that the solution is :
`==> x in (-oo,-6] U [0,8]`
