Cubic Equation Calculator

To calculate the roots:
 For example ,Enter a=1, b=8, c=16 and d=10. ax3 + bx2 + cx + d = 0 x³ + x² + x+ d = 0

 Results: X1: +   i X2: +   i X3: +   i

Just copy and paste the below code to your webpage where you want to display this calculator.

Cubic Equation Formula:
discriminant(Δ) = q3 + r2
q = (3c- b2)/9
r = -27d + b(9c-2b2)
s = r + √(discriminant)
t = r - √(discriminant)
term1 = √(3.0)*((-t + s)/2)
r13= 2 * √(q)
x1=(- term1 + r13*cos(q3/3) )
x2=(- term1 + r13*cos(q3+(2*∏)/3) )
x3=(- term1 + r13*cos(q3+(4*∏)/3) )

This calculator will help you dynamically to calculate the roots of the cubic equation. Easy to understand and use.
