Recently I have taken an interest in all things French. On account that I am part French I have come to appreciate French things like the French monarchy for example, French universities, and French thinkers. I learned about Évariste Galois when reading one of my many math books. Galois is credited with discovering the formula to solving quintic equations. And he discovered that for equations with powers of 5 and above the formula to solve them is the same, Galois proved this mathematically. Galois died young in a duel with a rival. So let's talk about Galois here and his contributions to mathematics.
