Description

In 1540, Lodovico Ferrari found the solution for the quartic equation after his master, Cardano, tried and failed to do the same himself. Using this method, we are able to find all four roots of any given quartic equation. In this project, I will show Ferrari's proof of the quartic solution and use his method to solve a given example.
