comment Finding internal rate of return (IRR)
@Finance101 A reasonable point, but it feels like the subject of a separate contest. Perhaps one in which numerous difficult test problems are shown and the challenge is to demonstrate a method that solves all of them correctly.

@PeterTaylor discard any imaginary roots. In the case of multiple real roots, either report all, or any one.

comment What colour is this?
I'm badly colorblind. Code that would respond in a manner accurate to my vision would take many fewer characters than what the rest of you are coming up with.

comment Largest number in ten bytes of code
The value is not set at compile-time, but depends on the particular machine on which the command is run. I think it counts.

comment On the interface between Quant finance and actuarial-science/insurance-math
The activity of insurance companies is constrained by regulations that specify actuarial limits and actuarially defined capital reserves, not "quantish" distribution or mitigation of risk. Until this changes, the mathematical basis of the insurance is likely to remain distinct from that used in the rest of the financial industry.
