Hello!

I would like to know if there is a formula resolving simplified, when a cubic equation is in the form

a * x^3 + b * x^2 + c * x + d = 0

with a = c and b = d ...

Help me, please!

Try inputting your problem into W|A just the way you typed it above.

"a * x^3 + b * x^2 + c * x + d = 0 with a = c and b = d"

http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=a+ ... nd+b+%3D+d

The result you get is a more simplified "(x^2+1) (c x+d) = 0" and you also get solutions for the variable x.

Hope that helps!

I wanted to know if with this use of WA i can see if any algebraic

equation is irreducble or not, without resorting to the infamous theory of elimination...

It is true?

Let me know, please!

It is unclear to me exactly what you are looking for, but perhaps the cubic formula will satisfy your curiosity.

You can use this to solve any cubic equation.

In general, if you input any equation into W|A it will tell you if there are any solutions and solve them if possible.
