Some solved problems on factoring are given below:

Solved Examples

Question 1: Factorize x+ 49 ?
Solution:
 
The factoring formula for sum of two nth powers is,
a+ bn  = (a + b)(ban-1- ban-2 + ........ - bn-2 a+ bn-1 a0)
x2 + 49
= x2 + 72
= (x + 7)(x - 7)

 

Question 2: Factorize x- 8 ?
Solution:
 
The factoring formula for difference of two nth powers is,
a- bn = (a - b)(ban-1+ ban-2 + ........ + bn-2 a+ bn-1 a0)
x3 - 8
= x3 - 23
= (x - 2)(x2 + 2x + 4)
