Step 1: x3 − 4x + x2 − 4
Step 2: x3 + x2 − 4x − 4
Step 3: x2(x + 1) − 4(x + 1)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0group it so the groups would be x^34x and x^24. you can factor out the x in x^34x so it'll be x(x^24) and x^24 you can factor out 1. so it'll be 1(x^24). so x^24 is seen in both groups, so it'll just be (x+1)(x^24) so i'm assuming it's step 3? because you'll get the same results.. since x+1 is seen in bth groups but i'm not sure haha
