Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0This is of the form (a^2+b^2) for which there are no real/rational factors. Check the question carefully to see if there is a typo.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3is that ur answer? (8x+5)(8x5) if so thats not correct since when we foil it out we will have 8x*8x+8x*5+5*8x+5*5 which gives 64x^2 40x +40x 25 64x^225 ...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yeah I agree with @LynFran (8x+5)(8x−5) =(8x+5)(8x+−5) =(8x)(8x)+(8x)(−5)+(5)(8x)+(5)(−5) =64x^2−40x+40x−25 =64x^2−25

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I know, but it's better than writing "no solution" or "can't be factored...."
