Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Some steps to rewrite the expression x3  16x + x2  16 as a product of three factors are shown below: Step 1: x3  16x + x2  16 Step 2: x3 + x2  16x  16 Step 3: x2(x + 1)  16(x + 1) Which of the following best shows the next two steps to rewrite the expression? Step 4: (x2 + 16)(x + 1); Step 5: (x + 4)(x + 4)(x + 1) Step 4: (x2  16)(x + 1); Step 5: (x + 4)(x + 4)(x + 1) Step 4: (x2  16)(x + 1); Step 5: (x  4)(x + 4)(x + 1) Step 4: (x2 + 16)(x + 1); Step 5: (x  4)(x + 4)(x + 1)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Step 3: x2(x + 1)  16(x + 1) we would take the terms on the outside and put them in a set of parenthesis so... (x216) then we notice the one on the side is (x+1) and its the same twice so we rewrite it one time therefore step 4 would look like (x216)(x+1)..... Next for step 5 we need to factor out the perfect square binomial (x216) to turn it into (x+4) and (x4).... this is because there is a specific rule for that... the whole step 5 looks like (x  4)(x + 4)(x + 1)
