Say you have a quadratic of known co - efficients whose discriminant is equal to zero. When you solve such a quadratic you get a pair of numbers which are identical.We say that quadratic have two identical roots while it have only one solution. So solution essentially refers to distinct roots. Similarly, if you have a equation whose one side is a perfect cube and another is zero. Then that equation have three identical roots while it have only one solution.
