Not necessarily completely pointless.
It ends up as in a general quintic.
Abel and those before and after him spent a great deal of time on that stuff.

The problem was to "solve for x". You haven't done that! "Solve for x" means to have x= something that has no x in it. You still have x on both sides of the equation.
