Solves for cubic equations in the form ax^{3} + bx^{2} + cx + d = 0 using the following methods:

1) Solve the long way for all 3 roots and the discriminant Δ

2) Rational Root Theorem (Rational Zero Theorem) to solve for real roots followed by the synthetic div/quadratic method for the other imaginary roots if applicable.

- Δ = 4b
^{3}d - b^{2}c^{2}+ 4ac^{3}- 18abcd + 27a^{2}d^{2} - x1 = 2j * Cosine(k/3) - b/(3a)
- x2 = l(m + n) + p
- x3 = l(m - n) + p
