You don't need advanced algebra to prove that it is impossible to trisect a line segment using only a straight edge and a compass: anyone knows that you will also need a pencil! And one you have that then there are plenty of easy ways to do it.

Q: Trisecting a line segment by using only a straightedge and compass was proven impossible by advanced algebra.?

It's not impossible.... if you do know what you are doing.

Adv. is accelerated most likely.

intermediate algebra is like medium difficulty. advanced algebra is harder for some people. that comes down to opinion... but advanced algebra teaches a more difficult or higher level math. its kind of like learning high school math in middle school, or college math in high school.

algebra 2 is more advanced

No.
