Here is another problem of the type that a high school student should be able to solve in 5 - 10 minutes. Find the sum of the 17th powers of the roots of the following equation: x^17 + 3x^2 + 2x -1 = 0. If nobody has a solution within a couple of days I will post one to the net. - Nathan Glasser ..decvax!yale-comix!nglasser
