    This is a bonus question I'm working on for an exam coming up.

    Find the exact root of X^3 + X -1 = f(x). I need to find it in the format:

    The exact root of X^2-x-1=0 is x=1+ or - the square root of 5 divided by 2. (Not a decimal or regular fractional number.)

    I got all the others, but I just can't get this one.
