Theory of Equations of First Degree
This theory about Equations is the continue of the previous post “How to solve an equation”
Theory of Biquadrate Equations.
To solve a biquadrate equation follow these steps:
- If there are parentheses and/or brackets, they are resolved with the necessary operation.
- If there are denominators, it is estimated the m.c.m. and we reduce all fractions to this common denominator.
- Denominators are removed once reduced all terms to m.c.m.
- Each term is simplifies the most possible.
- All terms are left on a member and it is equals to zero.
- The unknown “x²” is replaced by “t” thereby obtaining a quadratic equation.
- The quadratic equation is solved.
- It is performed again replacing, “t” by “x²”, and the square root is performed to obtains the values of “x”.
Theory of Equation of degree greater than two.
To solve a degree equation greater than two, not being biquadratic, we apply the Ruffini method as it is explained in Polynomials theory.
In case of grade 3 or higher and, having no independent term, we have to extract common factor “x” and resolve it as it is seen in the example.
