http://ask.sagemath.org/question/9868/solving-a-simple-equation/?answer=14614#post-id-14614Here is a numerical approach. I've not been able to get it symbolically.
show(plot(x+ x/abs(x)* abs(x)^(1/3)+2,(x,-5,5)))
find_root(x+ x/abs(x)* abs(x)^(1/3)+2,-2,-1/2)Fri, 01 Mar 2013 08:43:54 -0600http://ask.sagemath.org/question/9868/solving-a-simple-equation/?answer=14614#post-id-14614Comment by czsan for <p>Here is a numerical approach. I've not been able to get it symbolically.</p>

http://ask.sagemath.org/question/9868/solving-a-simple-equation/?comment=18124#post-id-18124Yes, this is right. This equation unsolvable in maple too, because of the third root of negativ numbers. But in Maple there is a surd function, which helps.Fri, 01 Mar 2013 08:55:42 -0600http://ask.sagemath.org/question/9868/solving-a-simple-equation/?comment=18124#post-id-18124
