I have a doubt regarding the definitions of both.

The example I had in a question was \((x-2)^3 (x-3)=0\) has how many solutions?

According to me it has 4 roots but 2 solutions while my instructor disagrees and says it has 4 roots and 4 solutions. So, which is correct?

Well; sorry!! I forgot about the zero. Now, who is correct?

Both are correct. For clarity, we should specify that there are 4 solutions, 3 of which are equal.
