Is possible? Is possible to transform a polynomial of kind axł+bx˛+cx+d in another like tł+pt+q. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cubic_...epressed_cubic But, I wish to eliminate the quadratic term and the linear term too...

You need some highly technical voodoo tricks to do that, though. See the link in my signature below. In general, this kinds of forms are called "Principle forms" and you need a quadratic Tschrinhausen instead of linear ones.

Now let the transformed cubic be The roots of the latter and the former be related as All we need is to determine the coefficients, namely, and . OK, fine. Just sum up the three roots of the former and the latter cubic and use Newton : Now note that the sum on the left side is 0, as there is no quadratic term in . So and we know the value of . For the next step, square both sides of and sum it up through the roots again You can compute the powersums explicitly by using the relations given here, and then solve the quadratic equation in terms of and then plug in the value of found before. This gives you and , but we still don't have the resulting cubic. Of course one easy way to go would be to sub the transformation in the cubic and plugging in and etc. etc. but that would take lots of algebraic manipulation (in case you don't have a CAS and the tools for computing resultants). There is a way fortunately, I will show it here if you want. (it's given here, by the way, for a quintic instead) Balarka .

Also, it is possible to prove that it is impossible to deduce a quintic to such binomial forms.
