Name: Gary Who is asking: Student
Question: Hi Gary, You didn't include any instructions so I am going to assume that you are to factor this expression. To factor you need to be really familar with the numbers and factoring patterns. For example, in your expression, I don't know what patterns you have seen in your lessons on factoring but I see another pattern here. Since 2^{ 3} = 8 the expression 8x^{ 3} + 1 = (2x)^{ 3} + 1^{ 3} can be factored as a sum of cubes. Chers,Penny
