1. As far as I'm informed Bhaskara's formula is used to solve quadratic equations. After some transformations your equation will be a cube equation:

If you don't want to use numerical methods you have to use Cardano's formula.

2. If and only if the original equation is

Then you can use Bhaskara's formula. - Mar 10th 2011, 01:41 AMlucas7
Hey, thanks for the answer.

Well I got to the point. But I do not understand how to reduce it to x^2 so I can use the bhaskara forum and solve it myself. Could you or someone please explain it? Thanks so much in advances
