Factor the polynomial below, if prime say so.
Reference: Examples 3 and 4
Factor each polynomial completely. If a polynomial is prime say so.
Note: See page 303 "Factoring a Difference or Sum of Two Cubes" to factor (m3+n3). This is a good example of factoring by long division and leads to the formula below.
a + b = (a + b)(a^2 -ab + b^2).© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com February 24, 2021, 2:28 pm ad1c9bdddf
