quintic equation and constantshello! so, I've came accross a problem I can't solve at all :c. The problem is as it follows: I searched how to solve it and found only one solution, but I didn't understand what was done... they turned into and somehow found that k = 2. also, they found "", which give us a = 3. That's actually the right answer, but I can't figure out what was done to solve this problem... :c Can you guys explain it to me? Thanks c: #3 20130629 04:21:04
Re: quintic equation and constantsHi; from which you see 10a^3 is the constant term. 10 a^3 =  270 a^3 =  27 a = 3 Or: Your latexing did not come out. That is derived from the binomial theorem. You only have to solve the equation. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #5 20130630 01:04:27
Re: quintic equation and constantsNo bother, happens to me all the time. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof.
