(x+18)(x-18)(x+12)>0

Solution set is {x|-8,-12}

Is this correct?

The leading term of the cubic is positive, so for x->∞, the function f(x) approaches ∞.

There should in fact be two intervals where f(x) is >0, between the two smaller zeroes, and when x>the largest zero.

If you plot the function, it will make it clear.
