    Thanks for your interest in Maxima. Maxima has some capability to solve equations with radicals via to_poly_solve. Since this report is a request for assistance instead of a bug, I'm closing it. However, I encourage you to read the documentation for to_poly_solve (via ? to_poly_solve at the Maxima input prompt) and follow up on the mailing list as needs be (see http://maxima.sf.net/maximalist.html for instructions).
