There are many ways to solve a ,atj problem, depending on the conditions.

Any way that give a correct answer is a correct way.

Here the most obvious way to factor is to note that it is a perfect square:

x^2+8x+16

=x^2+2(4x)+4^2

=(x+4)^2

Alternatively, you could see that:

x^2+8x+16

=x^2+4x+4x+4^2

=x(x+4)+4(x+4)

=(x+4)(x+4)

=(x+4)^2

as above.

Both methods are correct, the first one is more intuitive.
