    Start with the realization that this is the difference between 2 perfect squares. And when you have a^3 - b^3, this can be factored into (a - b)(a^2 + ab + b^2)

    It is the SUM of 2 perfect squares, which can be factored. a^3 + b^3 = (a + b)(a^2 - ab + b^2).

    So, 27x^3 + 125 = 0 -> (3x)^3 + 5^3 = 0 and you can use my formula (second post) and you can find the first zero.

    (3x)^3 + 5^3 = 0 = (3x + 5)(9x^2 - 15x + 25)

    You will have one real zero at x = -5/3 and 2 imaginary zeros that come from the second factor. Just use the quadratic formula.
