Why are the answers different ?Answered by Stephen La Rocque.     A sixth degree equation 2007-08-20 From Farzan:Dear friends I need to solve this equation with an understandable method for high-school students : (6.67*5.98*10^13/(R^2*2))^2 + 6.67*5.98*10^13/R = (7.27*10^-5*R)^2 please solve this problem if you have time.Answered by Harley Weston.
