From Abel–Ruffini theorem, we know that, there is no general algebraic solution to polynomial equations of degree five or higher. So there are general solutions for degrees n={1,2,3,4}. Does degree have to be an integer? What about the fractional degrees? Are there general solutions for example for $$x^{2.5}$$ ?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
