x2(squared)-4x+4 I would factor this into (X - 2)(X - 2) If you don't know the rules for factoring, post, and we can show you how to do it. I don't know the factoring rules. My algebra teacher couldn't teach.

**Math (Algebra 2)**

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].
