Factoring Polynomials
(please show step by step)

-8z^3 + 512w^3

  • Math -

    I see cubes all over the place, you should be familiar with the factors of A^3 + Bb^3 = (A+B)(A^2 - AB + B^2) and its equivalent of A^3 - B^3

    -8z^3 + 512w^3
    = -(8z^3 - 512w^3)
    = - (5z - 8w)(25z^2 + 40wz + 64w^2)

    In which step is the error? Step 1: Let x = 1 and y = 1. Step 2: By substitution xy = y^2. Step 3: Multiplying both sides by -1, -xy= -y^2. Step 4: Adding x^2 to both sides, x^2-xy=x^2-y^2. Step 5: Factoring, x(x-y)=(x+y)(x-y). Step
