\[81x^4-81?\]

\(81x^4 – 81\) \(81(x^4 –1 )\) \(81(~(x^2)^2 –1^2 )\) \(81(x^2 –1 )(x^2+1)\) and then the last step...

this is how I would go about this problem, with no need to remember any identities with the 4th power.

not done yet, you need one more step to complete this problem

oh, they did it differently, they didn't take 81 out....

  • SolomonZelman
oh, typo in the rule ok, so 81•x\(^4\)=3\(^4\)•x\(^4\)=(3x)\(^4\) this is what you get from your initial expression: (3x)\(^4\)-3\(^4\) then you can factor it, using a rule a\(^4\)-b\(^4\)=(a-b)(a+b)(a²+b²)

your a is 3x your b is 3
