# How should Root appear in an article containing Mathematica output? [duplicate]

I have the following output

Root[-c + λ^6 + 16 λ^4 μ +
104 λ^2 μ^2 +
384 μ^3 + (14 λ^4 + 168 λ^2 μ +
784 μ^2) #1 + (70 λ^2 + 560 μ) #1^2 +
140 #1^3 &, 1]


I want to transform the output of the usual form.

• ToRadicals[Root[...]] (see ToRadicals)

• Did you look up what Root means? If yes, that provides the answer. Feb 20 '15 at 16:45
• Try Root[-c + \[Lambda]^6 + 16 \[Lambda]^4 \[Mu] + 104 \[Lambda]^2 \[Mu]^2 + 384 \[Mu]^3 + (14 \[Lambda]^4 + 168 \[Lambda]^2 \[Mu] + 784 \[Mu]^2) #1 + (70 \[Lambda]^2 + 560 \[Mu]) #1^2 + 140 #1^3 &, 1] // ToRadicals // FullSimplify. Feb 20 '15 at 16:46
• Thank you. "ToRadicals" is the best answer. Feb 20 '15 at 16:55
