# How you do cubic? $$\pm$$

Given that $$s$$ and $$t$$ equals

and $$p$$ and $$q$$ such that

Manipulating a little bit, $$T$$ should become

See how $$T$$ and $$S$$ have a $$\pm$$ in them? When you subtract $$s$$ from $$t$$, why does that $$\pm$$ disappear, and does it equal to the same value as when they have the $$\pm$$ sign in them?

Yup, a simpler way to prove that cubic formula is to first depress the cubic polynomial. Cardano's method shows a good illustration of this. · 1 month, 1 week ago

Do you see the last 2 pictures? I was wondering what method allows you to get rid of that $$\pm$$ sign. · 1 month ago
