# Vieta: An Opera in Two Acts by Andrei Golovanov

**Algebra**Level 4

"*The sum of the roots of \(4x^{12}-36x^{11}+3x^7+7x^2+1=0\) is \(A\). Let me introduce performer Gustav von \(A\)!* "

Loud round of applause. Gustav von \(A\) sings *The Joy of Vieta*, by Wolfram Alphaeus Mozart. The curtain drops.

After a short interlude, the curtain reopens to reveal a brightly lit stage. In big letters is written \(3Ax^3-3=0\). Gustav von Schnieber appears to a roar of applause and sings a solo piece in basso: *The Product of the Roots of that 'Nomial*. He finishes by revealing that number. What was it? (It is a recurring number so just input the first few decimal places. Gustav von Schnieber, however, is still on stage finishing saying it!)
