Accepted Solution

A:
Answer:x = -(sqrt(349) - 7)^(1/10)/10^(1/10) or x = (sqrt(349) - 7)^(1/10)/10^(1/10) or x = -((-1)^(1/5) (sqrt(349) - 7)^(1/10))/10^(1/10) or x = ((-1)^(1/5) (sqrt(349) - 7)^(1/10))/10^(1/10) or x = -((-1)^(2/5) (sqrt(349) - 7)^(1/10))/10^(1/10) or x = ((-1)^(2/5) (sqrt(349) - 7)^(1/10))/10^(1/10) or x = -((-1)^(3/5) (sqrt(349) - 7)^(1/10))/10^(1/10) or x = ((-1)^(3/5) (sqrt(349) - 7)^(1/10))/10^(1/10) or x = -((-1)^(4/5) (sqrt(349) - 7)^(1/10))/10^(1/10) or x = ((-1)^(4/5) (sqrt(349) - 7)^(1/10))/10^(1/10) or x = -(1/10 (-7 - sqrt(349)))^(1/10) or x = (1/10 (-7 - sqrt(349)))^(1/10) or x = -(-1)^(1/5) (1/10 (-7 - sqrt(349)))^(1/10) or x = (-1)^(1/5) (1/10 (-7 - sqrt(349)))^(1/10) or x = -(-1)^(2/5) (1/10 (-7 - sqrt(349)))^(1/10) or x = (-1)^(2/5) (1/10 (-7 - sqrt(349)))^(1/10) or x = -(-1)^(3/5) (1/10 (-7 - sqrt(349)))^(1/10) or x = (-1)^(3/5) (1/10 (-7 - sqrt(349)))^(1/10) or x = -(-1)^(4/5) (1/10 (-7 - sqrt(349)))^(1/10) or x = (-1)^(4/5) (1/10 (-7 - sqrt(349)))^(1/10)Step-by-step explanation:Solve for x: -5 x^20 - 7 x^10 + 15 = 0 Substitute y = x^10: -5 y^2 - 7 y + 15 = 0 Divide both sides by -5: y^2 + (7 y)/5 - 3 = 0 Add 3 to both sides: y^2 + (7 y)/5 = 3 Add 49/100 to both sides: y^2 + (7 y)/5 + 49/100 = 349/100 Write the left hand side as a square: (y + 7/10)^2 = 349/100 Take the square root of both sides: y + 7/10 = sqrt(349)/10 or y + 7/10 = -sqrt(349)/10 Subtract 7/10 from both sides: y = sqrt(349)/10 - 7/10 or y + 7/10 = -sqrt(349)/10 Substitute back for y = x^10: x^10 = sqrt(349)/10 - 7/10 or y + 7/10 = -sqrt(349)/10 Taking 10^th roots gives (sqrt(349)/10 - 7/10)^(1/10) times the 10^th roots of unity: x = -(1/10 (sqrt(349) - 7))^(1/10) or x = (1/10 (sqrt(349) - 7))^(1/10) or x = -(-1)^(1/5) (1/10 (sqrt(349) - 7))^(1/10) or x = (-1)^(1/5) (1/10 (sqrt(349) - 7))^(1/10) or x = -(-1)^(2/5) (1/10 (sqrt(349) - 7))^(1/10) or x = (-1)^(2/5) (1/10 (sqrt(349) - 7))^(1/10) or x = -(-1)^(3/5) (1/10 (sqrt(349) - 7))^(1/10) or x = (-1)^(3/5) (1/10 (sqrt(349) - 7))^(1/10) or x = -(-1)^(4/5) (1/10 (sqrt(349) - 7))^(1/10) or x = (-1)^(4/5) (1/10 (sqrt(349) - 7))^(1/10) or y + 7/10 = -sqrt(349)/10 Subtract 7/10 from both sides: x = -(sqrt(349) - 7)^(1/10)/10^(1/10) or x = (sqrt(349) - 7)^(1/10)/10^(1/10) or x = -((-1)^(1/5) (sqrt(349) - 7)^(1/10))/10^(1/10) or x = ((-1)^(1/5) (sqrt(349) - 7)^(1/10))/10^(1/10) or x = -((-1)^(2/5) (sqrt(349) - 7)^(1/10))/10^(1/10) or x = ((-1)^(2/5) (sqrt(349) - 7)^(1/10))/10^(1/10) or x = -((-1)^(3/5) (sqrt(349) - 7)^(1/10))/10^(1/10) or x = ((-1)^(3/5) (sqrt(349) - 7)^(1/10))/10^(1/10) or x = -((-1)^(4/5) (sqrt(349) - 7)^(1/10))/10^(1/10) or x = ((-1)^(4/5) (sqrt(349) - 7)^(1/10))/10^(1/10) or y = -7/10 - sqrt(349)/10 Substitute back for y = x^10: x = -(sqrt(349) - 7)^(1/10)/10^(1/10) or x = (sqrt(349) - 7)^(1/10)/10^(1/10) or x = -((-1)^(1/5) (sqrt(349) - 7)^(1/10))/10^(1/10) or x = ((-1)^(1/5) (sqrt(349) - 7)^(1/10))/10^(1/10) or x = -((-1)^(2/5) (sqrt(349) - 7)^(1/10))/10^(1/10) or x = ((-1)^(2/5) (sqrt(349) - 7)^(1/10))/10^(1/10) or x = -((-1)^(3/5) (sqrt(349) - 7)^(1/10))/10^(1/10) or x = ((-1)^(3/5) (sqrt(349) - 7)^(1/10))/10^(1/10) or x = -((-1)^(4/5) (sqrt(349) - 7)^(1/10))/10^(1/10) or x = ((-1)^(4/5) (sqrt(349) - 7)^(1/10))/10^(1/10) or x^10 = -7/10 - sqrt(349)/10 Taking 10^th roots gives (-7/10 - sqrt(349)/10)^(1/10) times the 10^th roots of unity: Answer: Β x = -(sqrt(349) - 7)^(1/10)/10^(1/10) or x = (sqrt(349) - 7)^(1/10)/10^(1/10) or x = -((-1)^(1/5) (sqrt(349) - 7)^(1/10))/10^(1/10) or x = ((-1)^(1/5) (sqrt(349) - 7)^(1/10))/10^(1/10) or x = -((-1)^(2/5) (sqrt(349) - 7)^(1/10))/10^(1/10) or x = ((-1)^(2/5) (sqrt(349) - 7)^(1/10))/10^(1/10) or x = -((-1)^(3/5) (sqrt(349) - 7)^(1/10))/10^(1/10) or x = ((-1)^(3/5) (sqrt(349) - 7)^(1/10))/10^(1/10) or x = -((-1)^(4/5) (sqrt(349) - 7)^(1/10))/10^(1/10) or x = ((-1)^(4/5) (sqrt(349) - 7)^(1/10))/10^(1/10) or x = -(1/10 (-7 - sqrt(349)))^(1/10) or x = (1/10 (-7 - sqrt(349)))^(1/10) or x = -(-1)^(1/5) (1/10 (-7 - sqrt(349)))^(1/10) or x = (-1)^(1/5) (1/10 (-7 - sqrt(349)))^(1/10) or x = -(-1)^(2/5) (1/10 (-7 - sqrt(349)))^(1/10) or x = (-1)^(2/5) (1/10 (-7 - sqrt(349)))^(1/10) or x = -(-1)^(3/5) (1/10 (-7 - sqrt(349)))^(1/10) or x = (-1)^(3/5) (1/10 (-7 - sqrt(349)))^(1/10) or x = -(-1)^(4/5) (1/10 (-7 - sqrt(349)))^(1/10) or x = (-1)^(4/5) (1/10 (-7 - sqrt(349)))^(1/10)
