Solving a cubic equation is similar in some aspects to solving a quadratic equation, factorisation is in action.

In the two videos, I show you the step by step approach I took to solve a cubic equation either by synthetic division or comparing coefficients.

This concept is usually covered in **Secondary 3 Additional Maths syllabus under Factor and Remainder Theorem.**

Step 1 (same for both methods) : Guess and Check the first factor (with the help of the calculator).

Step 2: Find the **Quadratic Factor. **

Leave a comment to share with me which method do you prefer or usually use? I look forward to your comment!
