Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1here's an ugly method http://math.stackexchange.com/questions/785/isthereageneralformulaforsolving4thdegreeequations simplify it to 4th degree equation ... it has at max 4 roots, in our case it's 2 real and 2 complex

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0But should we do the graph for solving this? Is der no direct method?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1well i must say, @Taufique is quite correct in explaining above ... since curve cuts at two places, it has two real solutions, and two complex solutions

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1(x2+8x+23) will give you two complex roots, so your real roots are only 5 and 3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3First of all , find the dY/dX of the given curve.dy/dx means tangent on the curve. find the cut point of dy/dx and X axis on putting Y=0 in the equation ,and solve it it gives you solution of the equation..

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3ok Aadarsh ji ,i thought that you are in 12 th, you can solve it using hit and trial method.. and factorise this after it..

Aadarsh

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ji haan, I solved using trial method, got 5 and 3.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3If you will prepare for iit then you get a complex equation and on that situation it is very tough to guess what is the root...then there is many method to solve such a problem..
