A number is expressed as N=(x^2169)+(x13)^2
1. Factorise (x^2169)+(x13)^2 completely
2. Explain why N is an even number for any value of x
3. Hence, given that N=(83^2169)+70^2, without evaluating for N, find the 2 factors of N which are between 10 and 100

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2So have you expanded N first by doing (x13)(x13)?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.02x(x13) right? But for me the real problem is with the second and last number

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2\[x^2169+(x13)^2\] \[x^2169+(x^22(13)x+169)\] Is this what you did?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Ok So you have 2x(x13) And it has the factors 2, x, x13 Since it has the factor 2 , then that means N is divisble by 2 which means that N is ____?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0first two parts have been explained by @myininaya for the last part put x=83 in 2x(x+13) u get 2*83*96..this means two factors are 83 and 96
