Title

Solutions To Quartic Equations

Description

A quartic equation is one of the form ax4+bx3+cx2+dx+e=0. There is a formula that will give the solutions to this equation in terms of a, b, c, d, and e, but it is very cumbersome to use. This talk will present a method that transforms the quartic equation into a quadratic equation which can be solved more easily. The solutions to the quadratic equation then lead to the solutions of the quartic equation. Examples will be given that illustrate the method.
