Sorry, always looking for the easy way out. The relationship that I found was obviously just applicable to this particular problem.
and for ispow:
but i just cant remember where.
The full roots formula includes non-real roots also.
that euquled 0
Nice, krassi_holmz! Is this formula of the form;
There's a formula, like the quadratic root formula.
i got that answers by using the excel but i want the way you get it algebraically.
The exact roots using the root formula are:
If you could find a root to a n'th degree polynomial in O(1) time (constant, not changing based on the values of the equation), then you could greatly speed up many different algorithms, especially for calculators and math software.
If you have never seen the quartic formula, then you need to see just how completely ridiculous it really is to believe it. It is of absolutely no use to mere mortals. Just Google the quartic formula to see what I mean.
There is no easy mathimatical way to solve that equation. You could use the quartic equation, but that's really messy. The best way to solve those is to use a computer.
As far as I can tell it can't be done algebraically. I'm guessing that this was assigned to teach the rational roots theorem? Unfortunately, I don't remember the theorem, just the name.
hi guys ... how you doing all of you ?
