5th degree polynomial question4

In this page 5th degree polynomial question4 we are going to see how to solve the polynomial which is having degree 5.

Question 4 :

Solve  x⁵ - 5 x³ + 5 x² - 1

Solution :

The degree of this equation is 5. Therefore we can say there will be 5 roots for this equation.

This is a reciprocal equation of odd degree with unlike terms. So 1 is one of the root of this equation. The other roots are given by

x⁴ + x³ - 4 x² +  x + 1= 0

Dividing the entire equation by x²

x⁴/x² + x³/x² - 4 x²/x² + x/x² + 1/x² = 0

x² + x - 4  + 1/x + 1/x² = 0

(x² + 1/x²)  - 4  + (1/x) + x = 0

(x² + 1/x²) + (x + 1/x) - 4 = 0 ------ (1)

Let x + 1/x = y

To find the value of x² + 1/x² from this we have to take squares on both sides

(x + 1/x)² = y²

x² + 1/x² + 2 x (1/x) = y²

x² + 1/x² + 2 = y²

x² + 1/x² = y² - 2

So we have to plug y² - 2 instead of x² + 1/x²

Let us plug this value in the first equation

(y² - 2) + y - 4 = 0

y² - 2 + y - 4 = 0

y² + y - 6 = 0

y² + 3 y - 2 y - 6 = 0

y (y + 3) - 2 (y + 3) = 0

(y + 3) (y - 2) = 0

y + 3 = 0

y = -3

y = -3

y - 2 = 0

y = 2

y = 2

x + 1/x = y

(x² + 1)/x = -3

(x² + 1) = -3 x

x² + 1 + 3x = 0

x² + 3x + 1  = 0  5th degree polynomial question4 x = (-3 ± √5)/2

x + 1/x = y

(x² + 1)/x = 2

(x² + 1) = 2x

x² - 2 x + 1 = 0

x² - 1 x - 1 x + 1 = 0

x (x - 1) - 1(x - 1) = 0

(x - 1) (x - 1) = 0

(x - 1) = 0          (x - 1) = 0

x = 1                x = 1

x = 1

Therefore the 5 roots are x = 1,1,1,(-3 ± √5)/2
