Part 2 of mathematical modeling question

  • #1
Okay so after tearing my face off trying to find a 2-cycle, I've managed to make significant process. I divided an enormous polynomial with another polynomial and got a god awful mess which incidentally was correct. Now I'm having trouble solving this equation with x in terms of c:

-3x3-3((c2+8).5-c)x2+(6c2+6c((c2+8).5-8)x-8c-8((c2+8).5)

There are 3 solutions but I have no idea how to reach them:

wolfram alpha probably used the cubic polynomial solving formula and reduced it massively via algebra

ah, yes. I'll try to look that up.
