How would I factor this?

(x-3)^3+ (3x-2)^3

Can someone explain this to me step by step? thanks

  • Math -

    (1) Multiply them out.
    (2) Combine terms with the same exponent of x
    (3) Try to factor what is left

    The last step will probably be the hardest, but you need to get there first.

  • Math -

    dont you have a formula for the factors of two cubes?

    a^3+b^3= (a+b)(a^2-ab+b^2)

    Here, a is x-3 and b is 3x-2.
