Abstract : The main problem of solving an algebraic equation which is of higher degree is that of factorizing the polynomial in a product of polynomial factors of Degrees 1 and 2. A class of linear factors can be found with the aid of a power table. When these evident real roots are eliminated, the residue polynomial can be factorized in quadratic polynomial factors. A 'Table Method' is devised by which coefficient approximations can easily be found, and methods are shown for use when solving a quartic equation and when solving a sextic equation. (Author)
