Help?

-Solve Polynomial Equations By factoring.

1. x^6-25x^4=0

2. y^3-3y^2=16y-48

3. x^3+2x^2-9x-18=0

4. x^3+x^2-4x-4=0

5. x^3-7x^2=-5x-30

6. a^4+2a^3+a^2=0

7. 3n^4-4n^2=-1

8. 8x^5+10x^4=4x^3+5x^2

9. 2n^4-9n^2+4=0

10. 8y^4 / y^2 - 4y^2 / y^2 =0

1. x^4(x^2 - 25) = 0

x^4(x+5)(x-5) = 0

x=0 or x=-5 or x=5

2. x^3 - 3y^2 - 16y + 48=0

use grouping

y^2(y-3) - 16(y - 3) = 0

(y-3)(y^2 - 16) = 0

(y-3)(y+4)(y-4) = 0

y = 3 or y = -4 or y = 4

3, 4 done the same way

5. x^3 - 7x^2 + 5x + 30 = 0

--- now simple or easy solution, are you you typed it correctly?

6. take out common factor of a^2, then it becomes easy

7 .

3x^4 - 4n^2 + 1 = 0

let n^2 = x, we get

3x^2 - 4x + 1 = 0

(3x - 1)(x - 1) = 0

x = 1/3 or x = 1

then n^2 = 1/3 or n^2 = 1

n = 1/±√3 or n = ± 1

8. move everbody to the left, then factor

9. similar to #7

10 8y^4 / y^2 - 4y^2 / y^2 =0

8y^2 - 4 = 0

divide by 4

2y^2 - 1 = 0

y^2 = 1/2

y = ± 1/√2

#5 should say:

--- not a simple or easy solution, are you you typed it correctly?

Can You explain how to do 3?

i know it's like 2, but then if i factor everything out there's nothing left to make my two equations right?!
