# Math Help - Quintic equation possible?

1. ## Quintic equation possible?

$x^{5}+x=1$ this can be solved by approximation using perturbation theory/series.... f~g

Hey mathlover10.

You can get an approximation solution by using a root finder like Newton-Rhapson.

With regards to an analytic solution you will probably get some kind of infinite series expansion if you're lucky.
