How to find roots of a cubic equation

What are the roots of a cubic equation?

Cubic equationIn algebra, a cubic equation in one variable is an equation of the form.The solutions of this equation are called roots of the cubic function defined by the left-hand side of the equation. The coefficients do not need to be real numbers.

How do you find the cubic formula?

A cubic equation is an algebraic equation of third-degree. The general form of a cubic function is: f (x) = ax3 + bx2 + cx1 + d. And the cubic equation has the form of ax3 + bx2 + cx + d = 0, where a, b and c are the coefficients and d is the constant.

Can a cubic equation have 2 roots?

Just as a quadratic equation may have two real roots, so a cubic equation has possibly three. But unlike a quadratic equation which may have no real solution, a cubic equation always has at least one real root. If a cubic does have three roots, two or even all three of them may be repeated.

What is Cardano’s formula?

A formula for finding the roots of the general cubic equation over the field of complex numbers x3+px+q=0.

How do you find a repeated root on a calculator?

You need to use cFactor() function of the calculator (Factor() command also works but it won’t help you with complex roots). cFactor() will easily let you see which roots are repeated.

How do I solve a cubic equation in Excel?

The procedure is:Rearrange the equation to the form: aX^3 + bX^2 + cX + d = 0. Enter the coefficients, a to d, in a single column or row:Enter the cubic function, with the range of coefficient values as the argument.This will return one of the three solutions to the cubic equation.
