Re: equationAs 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. El que pega primero pega dos veces. #3 20060204 08:37:05
Re: equationThere 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.

Re: equationIf 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. #5 20060204 08:48:24
Re: equation
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.
