**Reiny**, Thursday, November 24, 2011 at 11:27amThis is very effective online webpage.

I simply entered the equation in the form

300x^2 -16.667x^3-7200 = 0

http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=300x%5E2+-16.667x%5E3-7200+%3D0

It gave my 3 real answers and the corresponding gram of

f(x) = 300x^2 -16.667x^3-7200

**drwls**, Thursday, November 24, 2011 at 4:22pmLet the 16.667 be treated at 16 2/3. Then

900 x^2 -50 x^3 -21600 = 0

One root of that equation is exactly x = 6. Call it a lucky guess.

Divide the cubic by (x-6) to get an easily solved quadratic, for the other two roots. It can be reduced to

x^2 -120 x -72 = 0
