I have been trying to solve this question, and I am not getting the right answer. I need to do Grouping 5x^3+5x^2-x+1

• algebra -

It is not an equation without an equal sign.

• algebra -

is call Factor by grouping

I have done a couple of problems

3x^3-12x^2-4x-16
(3x^3+4)(x-4)

he/she said "I've been trying to solve this QUESTION" not equation :)

it has been simplified already, you can't simplify it any further.

I need to solve the problem, factor by grouping.

• algebra -

5x^3+5x^2-x+1
I see no grouping to factor this. If the sign on the x term were +, it could be factored.

bobpursley, I am sorry I type one of the sign wrong. 5x^3-5x^2-x+1 this is how it should be read, I am sorry for the confusion.
