# Solve x^3 + x^2 + x + 7 = y for x when y = 46

## Question:

Solve *x*3 + *x*2 + *x* + 7 = *y* for *x* when *y* = 46.

## Solving Higher Degree Polynomial:

In mathematics, a higher degree polynomial equation is an equation with an exponent that is greater than 2. We can solve these types of equations using a series of steps specific to the equation at hand.

## Answer and Explanation:

Solving *x*3 + *x*2 + *x* + 7 = *y*, for *x* when *y* = 46 gives *x* = 3, *x* = -2 + 3*i*, and *x* = -2 - 3*i*.

To solve this problem, we want to find *x* when *y* = 46, so...
