If $t^{2}-4t+1=0$, then the value of $\left[t^{3}+1/t^{3} \right]$ is :

1. $44$
2. $48$
3. $52$
4. $64$

Given that= $t^2-4t+1=0$

or $t^2+1=4t$

dividing by $t$ in both side we get;

$t+\frac{1}{t}=4$

taking cube in bothe side we get:

$\implies t^3+\frac{1}{t^3}+3*t*\frac{1}{t}*(t+\frac{1}{t})=64$

$\implies t^3+\frac{1}{t^3}+3*4=64$

$\implies t^3+\frac{1}{t^3}=64-12=52$

Option $C$ is correct here.
