Hey, I'd really appreciate help on these questions and how to solve them. For the first one, I had no idea how to do it (Q#13). On the second one, this is what I got up too (Q#14). 1. Cube each Side  m+9 = 27 + 27THIRDROOTOF(m9) + 9(2/3)ROOTOF(m9) + m9 2. Rearrange and Sub x for THIRDROOTOF(m9)  0=9+27x+9x^2 3. Divide both sides by 9 0 = 1 + 3x + x^2 4. (Here I got lost so I just tried to do stuff to help me out.) 0 = 1 + 3x +x^2 x +x 0 = 1 + 2x + x^2 + x 0 = (1+x)^2 + x http://img194.imageshack.us/img194/1097/kvgc.jpg

I followed your work to arrive at m = 4SQRT(5), but that I'm quite sure is not the solution for the above equation... http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=%2 ... ++3+%3D+0 So what did I miss? Thanks guys!
