UnkleRhaukus Group Title

roots of a trinomial \[ax^3+bx^2+cx+d=0\] let the roots be \(p,q,r\) When \(x\) is equal a root the equation equals zero \[(x-p)(x-q)(x-r)=0\] \[(x-p)(x^2-(q+r)x+qr)=0\] \[x\left(x^2-(q+r)x+qr\right)-p\left(x^2-(q+r)x+qr\right)=0\] \[\left(x^3-(q+r)x^2+(qr)x\right)-\left(px^2-p(q+r)x-qpr\right)=0\] \[x^3-(p+q+r)x^2+(qr+pq+pr)x-pqr=0\] comparing with \[x^3+\frac bax^2+\frac cax+\frac da=0\] \[-(p+q+r)=\frac ba\qquad\text{the sum of the roots is } -\frac ba\] \[(qr+pq+pr)=\frac ca\qquad\text{sum of products of pairs of the roots is } \frac ca\] \[-pqr=\frac da\qquad \text{the product of the roots is} -\frac da \]

    i guess a trinomial always has at least one real root

    if the trinomial has real co-efficients, then complex roots occur in pairs, hence it must have atleast 1 real solution .

    notice the sign change everytime, product of all roots = \( (-1)^n a_0/a_n \)

    I should mention that there are all real and complex roots in formulas.
