Finding the roots of cubic equations has been the focus of research by many mathematicians. Omar Khayyam, the 11th century Iranian mathematician, astronomer, philosopher and poet, discovered a geometrical method for solving cubic equations by intersecting conic sections . In more recent times, various methods have been presented to find the roots of cubic equations. Some methods require complex number calculations, a number of techniques use graphical methods to find the roots [e.g. 2, 3] and some other techniques use trigonometric functions [e.g. 4]. The method presented in this paper does not use graphical techniques as in  and , does not involve complex number calculations, and does not require using trigonometric functions. By using this fairly simple method, the roots of cubic equations can be found in a short time without using complicated formulas.
