can anyone help me solve this simple yet confusing algebra (well its not at all confusing really)
thank you

Is this what you mean?
x=0, solution = –160,000
etc ...
let me rewrite the equation;
thanks :wink:let y=x^2 and then go here
but just a question, when do we learn this Ferrari's line method??
what age? cause surely i have never come across this before..
it's a university level topic, I was never introduced to it in class.
It is so old that I would be astonished if one ever encountered it in a university mathematics class, even in graduate school.Originally Posted by Arcane_Mathematician
There is not much point beyond showing how one might solve a quartic equation by radicals. There is very little reason to do this in practice.
What you would see in an advanced university class is a development of the theory of fields, Galois theory. In Galois theory it is proved that the general quintic and higher polynomial is not solvabe by radicals.
ok, i see.
well thank you Arcane and Dr.Rocket for the help.
