Form the Cubic equation from the given roots
  • Last Updated : 23 Mar, 2021

Given the roots of a cubic equation A, B and C, the task is to form the Cubic equation from the given roots.
Note: The given roots are integral.
Examples: 
 

Input: A = 1, B = 2, C = 3 
Output: x^3 – 6x^2 + 11x – 6 = 0 
Explanation: 
Since 1, 2, and 3 are roots of the cubic equations, Then equation is given by: 
(x – 1)(x – 2)(x – 3) = 0 
(x – 1)(x^2 – 5x + 6) = 0 
x^3 – 5x^2 + 6x – x^2 + 5x – 6 = 0 
x^3 – 6x^2 + 11x – 6 = 0.
Input: A = 5, B = 2, C = 3 
Output: x^3 – 10x^2 + 31x – 30 = 0 
Explanation: 
Since 5, 2, and 3 are roots of the cubic equations, Then equation is given by: 
(x – 5)(x – 2)(x – 3) = 0 
(x – 5)(x^2 – 5x + 6) = 0 
x^3 – 5x^2 + 6x – 5x^2 + 25x – 30 = 0 
x^3 – 10x^2 + 31x – 30 = 0. 
 

 

Approach: Let the root of the cubic equation (ax3 + bx2 + cx + d = 0) be A, B and C. Then the given cubic equation can be represents as: 
 

ax3 + bx2 + cx + d = x3 – (A + B + C)x2 + (AB + BC +CA)x + A*B*C = 0. 
Let X = (A + B + C) 
Y = (AB + BC +CA) 
Z = A*B*C 
 



Therefore using the above relation find the value of X, Y, and Z and form the required cubic equation.
Below is the implementation of the above approach:
 

C++




// C++ program for the approach
 
#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
 
// Function to find the cubic
// equation whose roots are a, b and c
void findEquation(int a, int b, int c)
{
    // Find the value of coefficient
    int X = (a + b + c);
    int Y = (a * b) + (b * c) + (c * a);
    int Z = a * b * c;
 
    // Print the equation as per the
    // above coefficients
    cout << "x^3 - " << X << "x^2 + "
         << Y << "x - " << Z << " = 0";
}
 
// Driver Code
int main()
{
    int a = 5, b = 2, c = 3;
 
    // Function Call
    findEquation(a, b, c);
    return 0;
}

Java




// Java program for the approach
 
class GFG{
 
// Function to find the cubic equation
// whose roots are a, b and c
static void findEquation(int a, int b, int c)
{
    // Find the value of coefficient
    int X = (a + b + c);
    int Y = (a * b) + (b * c) + (c * a);
    int Z = a * b * c;
 
    // Print the equation as per the
    // above coefficients
    System.out.print("x^3 - " + X+ "x^2 + "
                  + Y+ "x - " + Z+ " = 0");
}
 
// Driver Code
public static void main(String[] args)
{
    int a = 5, b = 2, c = 3;
 
    // Function Call
    findEquation(a, b, c);
}
}

def findEquation(a, b, c):
     
    # Find the value of coefficient
    X = (a + b + c);
    Y = (a * b) + (b * c) + (c * a);
    Z = (a * b * c);
 
    # Print the equation as per the
    # above coefficients
    print("x^3 - " , X ,
          "x^2 + " ,Y ,
          "x - " , Z , " = 0");
