Depressed Cubic

An important note in the solution of the cubic (meaning developing a formula) is the shift from a general cubic to a form that admitted a solution. This special form is called the depressed cubic, where the coefficient of the quadratic term is zero. Omar Khayyam found a geometric method to solve these, but they also turned out to be the key to the cubic formula.
