Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0hi @evy15 are you in numerical analysis? the root are 2.07316, 1.2355, 5.5573 and two complex roots check it for yourself if they are true

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@evy though the equation is 5x^520x^440x^316x^245x+180=0 correct bu t may be i feel u have typed in 16X^2 instead of 160x^2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Have you done numerical methods in your course? This is not a problem that can be solved by factorization, or rearrangements. I suggest you triple check the question.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It can be solved numerically, or graphically. Are these expected methods to use in your course?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Are you working on factorization, Descartes rule of signs, etc.? I suggest you check your course outline to see what you're expected to know, or check with a friend to see what has been done that day. The prof would also be pleased to tell you what has been covered that day. This problem requires numerical methods which are techniques completely different from your previous problems.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I believe you, but your prof made a typo! Check in the index of your textbook to see if Newton's method is in there. What is the title of your textbook?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0As matricked pointed out, IF 16x^2 had been +160x^2, then there are rational roots obtainable by grouping. 5x^520x^440x^3+160x^245x+180 =5(x^54x^48x^3+32x^29x+36) \(= 5( x^4(x4) 8x^2(x4) 9(x4)) \) \(= 5(x4)(x^48x^29) \) \(= 5(x4)(x^29)(x^2+1) \) \(= 5(x4)(x+3)(x3)(x^+1) \)
