Some 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?
a. Step 4: (x2 + 16)(x + 1); Step 5: (x + 4)(x + 4)(x + 1)
b.Step 4: (x2  16)(x + 1); Step 5: (x + 4)(x + 4)(x + 1)
c.Step 4:(x2  16)(x + 1); Step 5: (x  4)(x + 4)(x + 1)
d.Step 4: (x2 + 16)(x + 1); Step 5: (x  4)(x + 4)(x + 1)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[x^2(x+1)16(x+1)\to (x^216)(x+1)\] would be a good first step

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1then factor \(x^216\) it is the difference of two squares so it is \(x^216=(x+4)(x4)\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1looks like it is C as usual \[c.Step 4:(x2  16)(x + 1); Step 5: (x  4)(x + 4)(x + 1) \]
