I guess you might as well just use Newton's recursion for these things...

That's why I prefer the approximated result.

Lol.thanks... wow... that looks so complicated lol

The general quintic can be solved in terms of Jacobi theta functions, as was first done by Hermite  in 1858. Kronecker  subsequently obtained the same solution more simply, and Brioschi also derived the equation.

Yes, I've read very much about Abel.

And the Galous theory simplifies the result.
The solubility of an equation depends of the structude if its Galous group.

Very good posts and images uploaded, krassi_holmz. Those would be very useful. BTW, did you know the insolubility of the quintic equation was shown first by Neils Henrik Abel, the Norwegain Mathematician?

this is the exact root!

I am sure you could find this without using the cubic formula.
x^3 - x - 1 = 0
x(x^2-1) = 1
if x = 0, the equasion has no meaning, so x must differ from 0 (x<>0); Now we can devide by x.
x^2 - 1 = 1/x.
We draw the graphics of these two expressions - x^2 - 1 and 1/x. After that we check where they cross eachother. This happens only in I quadrant which means that x^3 - x - 1 = 0 has only one real root. Afterwards doing some calculas we find that the root is somewhere between 1 and √2. Now we have to use the tangents and make some calculations and I am sure we will get the exact value of this root.

Equations >4 are unsolvable exactin radicals. (Galoa)

I did not know the roots of a cubic equation and looked for it on the net. I got to this pdf. Ricky, you can find the root of the incomplete cubic equation using the formulae.

If you use the cubic formula, shouldn't you come up with the exact root?
