## Solving Quadratic, Cubic, Quartic and higher order equations; examples

A previous post presented a spreadsheet with functions for solving cubic and quartic equations, and this has been extended with another function solving higher order polynomials. The functions are actually very easy to use, but the documentation in the spreadsheets is quite brief, … Continue reading

## Solving higher order polynomials

The Quartic spreadsheet presented here previously (most recently here) uses algebraic techniques to provide an “exact” solution to polynomial equations of up to fouth order. For polynomials of higher order there is no general algebraic solution, and numerical methods are … Continue reading
