    Can you do complex (imaginary) solutions, or only real solutions?

    Notice that 27 = 3^3, so this is the sum of the cube of x and the cube of 3. x^3 + 3^3 = 0 The first step is to factor it.

    (x + 3)(x^2 - 3x + 9) = 0

    Now to solve the equation, do x + 3 = 0 or x^2 - 3x + 9 = 0 The left side is x = -3. For the right side, use the quadratic formula.
