For a long time the search to solve equations pushed the brilliant minds in the human History. Arithmetical, geometric and algebraic mechanisms ere developed bringing advance to the mathematics knowledge. A lot of these resources were "simplified" and nowadays they're handled in the classroom overruling among them the algebraic manipulation. This article, gotten from chapter 1 of Math Master dissertation in the PROFMAT Program from UFRPE and named A Geometrical Approach to the cubic Equations shows as from the history of algebra a geometrical manner, not usual anymore, to find the solution to second and third degree equations.
