1. I see no equation

If you mean y^3 - 1.5y^2 + .3275 = 0
would rather work with integers, so multiply each term by 400
400y^3 - 600y^2 + 131 = 0

I don't know where you are at in your math studies.
Have you learned a way to solve cubics?
One way is to use Newton's Method, this requires knowledge of Calculus

I just ran your equation through Wolfram and got

Using the original, produced the same results

Show that the equation (1) divided by (x+1) - (x)divided by (x-2)=0 has no real roots Well, to begin, start with 1/(x+1-x). The x's cancel out because they are opposite signs, so now you have 1/1, or just 1. Then, you are dividing
