**Algebra**

Solve the equation. Use factoring or the quadratic formula, whichever is appropriate. Try factoring first. If you have any difficulty factoring, then go right to the quadratic formula. (Enter your answers as a comma-separated list.) (x+2)^2 + (x-7)(x-2)=16

Factoring by Using a Quadratic Form Problem: x^4 + 8x^2 - 20 What I have so far: (x^2)^2 + 8(x^2) - 20 a^2 + 8a - 20 For some reason my textbook says to substitute the (x^2) with (a) as you can see in the las step. The next step after that is factoring [a^2 + 8a - 20].
