If the equation is simplified to equal x = 11 or x = 7 How does one of these equal 0

We are given: Factor further: Divide through by 27·15: Now, by the zeroproduct property, if two factors are equal to zero, then the equation is true if either of the factors is equal to zero. So, what you do is take each factor in turn, equate to zero and solve for x: i) ii) These are the two values for x which are solutions to the original equation.
