    I wrote out step one as: \[( X +4) ^{2} (x +4)\] --- But then I loose it and have no idea what to do after that

    No wait... \[X ^{2 + X (4) + 4(X) 4 (4) + (X + 4)}\]

    may not be right, but here's a shot: (x+4)(x+4)=X ^{2}+8x+16 then multiply that by (x+4)

    The book gives the answer as: \[X ^{3 }+ 12X ^{2}+ 48X + 64 ---- AS you can see... I have no idea how to get from my last post to this answer...Im lost
