Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Although their way can also be another possible solution since between y\(^4\) and y\(^3\) there is a common y\(^1\), therefore, \[y^3(y1) \equiv y(y^3y^2)\] which i'm realizing is not what's written lol.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yeah i think so but what they did was use the difference of cubes so they furthered the equation to y(y^31) = y(y1)(y^2+y+1)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Well, \((y^31) \iff (a^3b^3) \implies (ab)(a^2+ab+b^2)\)
