22017,Unreadable real solution for a very simple equation,pelegm,,"Try this (on 7.5.beta4):
{{{#!python
sage: solve(x^3 == -8, x)
[x == I*sqrt(3)*(-1)^(1/3) - (-1)^(1/3), x == -I*sqrt(3)*(-1)^(1/3) - (-1)^(1/3), x == 2*(-1)^(1/3)]
}}}
The first solution is in fact `-2`. Looks horrible that way.
Sympy handles this well:
{{{#!python
>>> solve(Eq(x**3, -8))
[-2, 1 - sqrt(3)*I, 1 + sqrt(3)*I]
}}}
Wolfram Alpha is also ok with this.",defect,closed,major,sage-duplicate/invalid/wontfix,symbolics,invalid,solve,,,,Frédéric Chapoton,N/A,,,,,
