All the best, Integrator August 20th, 2019, 08:17 AM #2 Senior Member   Joined: Dec 2015 From: somewhere Posts: 647 Thanks: 93 Substitute for $\displaystyle x=a+bi$ and then expand the polynomial. Now find a and b . For example :equation $\displaystyle (1-2i)x+7-8i=0$. x-2ix+7-8i =0 ; Let x=a+bi ; a+bi-2i(a+bi)-8i+7=0 ; a+7-2b +i(2a- 8=0) . Now solve the system of equations ,{ a+7=2b ; 2a=8 } . a=4 , b=11/2 . The solution is $\displaystyle x=a+bi =4+\frac{11}{2} i$.

They aren't real numbers. Will approximate complex solutions suffice? Thanks from topsquark August 23rd, 2019, 08:13 PM   #6

Hello,

How do we get to these solutions without using Cardan's formulas?Thank you very much!

All the best,
