    And you.
    Thanks, I know I've flopped though. I never revised, just hoping to change by September.

    How long did it take you to solve it and type it up?

    Loool, this is why I hate writing up a lot of stuff on TSR. Latex helps with quadratics the most, the rest all horse square roots, fractions - I forgot how to write them and have to refer back lol so I just take pictures now .

    Damn worth using the annoying Latex on these when you've done something you're proud of ;D

    Not everyday I get to solve a nice 6th degree polynomial like that xD

    It's 10pm, I'm tired, and I really hate polynomials with degree n>3 so usually I'd tell you to go **** yourself... but I gave it a shot anyway with a nice long method, enjoy. =)

    x= -\frac{(3+\sqrt8)-\sqrt{13+\sqrt2\cdot12}}{2}
    It was a specifically chosen function, 'symmetric' coefficients.

    I noticed they were symmetric hence why I chose my method. Anything else and I would've struggled as I've never solved these high degree polynomials before. If there a faster way of solving them/different methods? Like using matrices or something?

    Also I just noticed my other solution is not correct, so I think I'll just leave it at that.
