In this article we discuss some methods of visualizing complex roots of a cubic equation, with examples. First we present a brief history of cubic equations and define the roots of general cubic equation. The first method presented is De Moivre’s method, folloved by geometric interpretation and graphic determination of the roots and other more or less known methods.
