## Main Question or Discussion Point

Hello;

Is there any type of mathematical problem which can only be solved by trial and error (and therefore no other method has been found)? For example, for a cubic equation x^3 + x = 25, one could use trial and error, but a method arrives at the answer too.

Thanks.
