Given that \(x\) is real and \(x^3+\frac{1}{x^3}=52\), find \(x+\frac{1}{x}\).

Hint:  Use the expansion of  \((x+\frac{1}{x})^3\)

 

Then it will all fall out.  If it doesn't at first then you may need to think a little harder.

 

Please no one answer over me, this should be a teaching site, which includes hints.   

(this site should not be a cheat site)
