Hello all, Determine the set of all values of the parameter $\displaystyle a\geq 0$ knowing that the equation $\displaystyle \sqrt[3]{x^46x^2+9}3a\sqrt[3]{x^23}+2a^2=0$ has all the real roots. All the best, Integrator

\begin{align} a+b&=c \\ (a+b)^3 &= c^3 \\ a^3 + a^2b + ab^2 + b^3 &= c^3 \\ a^3 + (a+b)ab + b^3 &= c^3 \\ a^3 +abc + b^3 &= c^3 \end{align}

$\sqrt[3]{x^46x^2+9}3a\sqrt[3]{x^23}+2a^2 = 0$ $\sqrt[3]{(x^23)^2}3a\sqrt[3]{x^23}+2a^2 = 0$ let $u = \sqrt[3]{x^23}$ $u^2  3au + 2a^2 = 0$ The discriminant $D = (3a)^2  4(2a^2) = a^2$ $\forall a \geq 0,~D\geq 0$ Thus the equation will always have real roots. $x = \pm \sqrt{3+a^3},~\pm \sqrt{3+8a^3}$

Some say that the equation has all the real roots only if $\displaystyle a=0$ , because the equation has $\displaystyle 12$ roots of which $\displaystyle 4$ are real and $\displaystyle 8$ complex roots. What are the complex roots? All the best, Integrator
