Hello everyone. I tried solving this problem on our homework and I'm not sure about it because I didn't arrive at an actual number as an answer. Please tell me where I went wrong if my answer is incorrect. Thank you very much! :)

I find your attachment very hard to read.
And frankly, I find this particular problem completely pointless.

Beer soaked ramblings follow.

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.
