1. You are in luck with that one. Yes, it can be factored.

It is of the form a^3 + b^3, where a = 4s and b = 9y.

Recall that
a^3 + b^3 = (a + b)(a2 - ab + b2)

So one of the factors is
(4s + 9y)

See if you can figure out the other one.

Factor 2x²+13x+40 I thought with this sort of problem you are supposed to multipy 40 by 2 and get 80 and then come up with two factors that equal 13. If this doesn't work, you are supposed to factor out a number/variable. Since

How can you factor? 1. x^4 - 4x^2 + 3 2. x^3 - 2x^2 - 4x + 8 Thanks 1. set a = x^2 this should simplify your problem once you've factored the expression, substitute x^2 back in for a 2. For our purposes I don't think this
