## 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
