It's part of a larger problem, 16x^5 250x^2, and I saw that you could factor out a 2x^2 but don't know what to do next.

You have the difference of 2 perfect cubes: \[a ^{3}  b ^{3} = (a  b)(a ^{2} + ab + b ^{2})\]where a = 2x and b = 5

Once you make your substitutions for "a" and "b", you won't be able to factor\[a ^{2} + ab + b ^{2}\]unless you can go with complex number solutions.
