(5/3)

### Description

Find the roots of polynominal equations with Purpose Excel Functions

Quartic - ax^4 + bx^3 + cx^2 + dx +e = 0
=quartic(a, b, c, d, e, Output Index -1 to 5 (optional))
Cubic - ax^3 + bx^2 + cx + d = 0
=cubic(a, b, c, d, Output Index -1 to 4 (optional))
CubicCa - x^3 + bx^2 + cx + d = 0
=cubicC(a, b, c, d, Output Index -1 to 4 (optional))
Quadratic - ax^2 + bx + c = 0
=quadratic(a, b, c, Output Index 1to 3(optional))

Notes
1 Enter an output index to specify a real root number, or the number of real roots
2 Enter a negative output index to specify a complex root number, or the number of complex roots
3 Enter as an array formula to return an array with the real part of all roots and the number of real roots
4 Enter as an array formula with output index = -1 to return an array with the imaginary part of all roots and the number of complex roots
5 Equations of lower order may be solved by entering 0 in the redundant factors.
