Question about Casio CFX-9850G Plus Calculator
Hi, I ws playing around with my calculator and Ive put it in a complex number mode.
When I try to solve a cubic equation, all of the solutions are in complex numbers, when they shouldnt be.
Is there anything that I can do about this to stop my answers being complex numbers when solving cubic equations?

You are making an assumption that is unwarranted.Namely that a cubic equation must necessarily have 3 real roots. This is not the case.
Let your equation be
If coefficients are complex you should expect some complex roots. Right?
If the coefficients are REAL then depending on the discriminant
you can have three cases
DELTA positive : three distinct real roots
DELTA=0 , the equation has a multiple root and all roots are REAL
DELTA negative: the equation has ONE real root and 2 complex roots that are complex conjugate of each other.
It suffices to look at the Tartaglia/Cardano expressions of the roots to know that more often than not there is going to be compIn complex number mode, how to get out? - d64abc4.jpgbr />

you can enter a complex number in r*exp(i*theta ) form.
This is exponential form of complex number. However, use this form in Radian
angle mode only. It causes a Domain
error in Degree or Gradian angle mode. To resolving this problem type Mode then
F1 and set up Radian mode
