# Strange problems!

Some strange problems struck my mind recently, let me share them with this community. Everyone is welcome to post solutions.

Find the value of this strange infinitely nested radical:

$$\sqrt [ 3 ]{ 6+\sqrt [ 3 ]{ 6+\sqrt [ 3 ]{ 6+\sqrt [ 3 ]{ 6+... } } } }$$

Even stranger :

$$\sqrt [ 3 ]{ 6+\sqrt [ ]{ 6+\sqrt [ 3 ]{ 6+\sqrt [ ]{ 6+\sqrt [ 3 ]{ 6+\sqrt { 6+...} } } } } }$$

But the strangest:

$$\sqrt [ 3 ]{ 6+\sqrt [ ]{ 6-\sqrt [ 3 ]{ 6+\sqrt [ ]{ 6-\sqrt [ 3 ]{ 6+\sqrt { 6-... } } } } } }$$

Sort by:

$$1)$$: $$\sqrt[3]{6+\sqrt[3]{6+\sqrt[3]{6+\ldots}}}=x \\ \sqrt[3]{6+x}=x \Rightarrow 6+x=x^3 \\ x^3-x-6=0 \\ (x-2)(x^2+2x+3)\Rightarrow x=\boxed{2}$$

$$2)$$: $$\sqrt[3]{6+\sqrt{6+\sqrt[3]{6+\sqrt{6+\ldots}}}}=x \\ \sqrt[3]{6+\sqrt{6+x}}=x\Rightarrow \sqrt{6+x}=x^3-6 \\ 6+x=x^6-12x^3+36 \\ x^6-12x^3-x+30=0 \\ \Rightarrow \text{No integral solution}$$

$$3)$$ $$\sqrt[3]{6+\sqrt{6-\sqrt[3]{6+\sqrt{6-\ldots}}}}=x \\ \sqrt[3]{6+\sqrt{6-x}}=x\Rightarrow \sqrt{6-x}=x^3-6 \\ 6-x=x^6-12x^3+36 \\ x^6-12x^3+x+30=0 \Rightarrow x=\boxed{2}$$

for 2, there are two real roots like 1.83 and 2.something

Yes, but they aren't integral, therefore, I didn't stated them in my solution.

1) $$2$$

2) Solve $$x^6 - 12x^3 - x + 30 = 0$$
