Cubic equations either have one real root or three, although they may be repeated, but there is always at least one solution. The type of equation is defined by the highest power, so in the example above, it wouldn’t be a cubic equation if a = 0, because the highest power term would be bx 2 and it would be a quadratic equation. Chapter 4. The solution of cubic and quartic equations In the 16th century in Italy, there occurred the first progress on polynomial equations beyond the quadratic case. The person credited with the solution of a cubic equation is Scipione del Ferro (), who lectured in arithmetic and geometry at the University of Bologna from

Ludovico Ferrari, discovered the solution of the general cubic equation: x³ + bx² + cx + d = 0 But his solution depended largely on Tartaglia’s solution of the depressed cubic and was unable to publish it because of his pledge to Tartaglia. In addition, Ferrari was also able to discover the solution to the quartic equation, but it also. 3. Solving cubic equations Now let us move on to the solution of cubic equations. Like a quadratic, a cubic should always be re-arranged into its standard form, in this case ax3 +bx2 +cx+d = 0 The equation x2 +4x− 1 = 6 x is a cubic, though it is not written in the standard form. We need to multiply through by x, giving us x3 +4x2 − x = 6. Solution of Cubic Equations. After reading this chapter, you should be able to: 1. find the exact solution of a general cubic equation. How to Find the Exact Solution of a General Cubic Equation In this chapter, we are going to find the exact solution of a general cubic equation . 2 The cubic formula In this section, we investigate how to flnd the real solutions of the cubic equation x3 +ax2 +bx+c = 0: Step 1. First we let p = b¡ a2 3 and q = 2a3 27 ¡ ab 3 +c Then we deflne the discriminant ¢ of the cubic as follows: ¢ = q2 4 + p3 27 Step 2. We have the following three cases: Case I: ¢ > 0. In this case there is.

Every good history of math book will present the solution to the cubic equation and tell of the events surrounding book will also mention, usually without proof, that in the case of three distinct roots the solution must make a detour into the field of complex these notes we prove this result and also discuss a few other nuances often missing from the history books.

If we look back on Ferrari’s Method, we may think that Cardano/Ferrari. Additional Physical Format: Online version: Salzer, Herbert E. Table for the solution of cubic equations.
