RootReduce

FilledSmallSquare RootReduce[expr] attempts to reduce expr to a single Root object.

FilledSmallSquare If expr consists only of integers and Root objects combined using algebraic operations, then the result from RootReduce[expr] will always be a single Root object.

FilledSmallSquare Simple Root objects may in turn automatically evaluate to rational expressions or combinations of radicals.

FilledSmallSquare See Section 3.4.3.
