To start this problem you must know that there are formulas for this kind of factorization… Here they are.
In this case, we will be using the second formula.
We can factor out a GCF(Greatest Common Factor) in this problem.
Which is 2.
“a” represents the number thats cubed to get x^3…
So in this case a=x
"b" represents the number thats cubed to get 64…
So in this case b=4.
So now using our formula we can easily factor our problem.
2(x-4)((x^2)+4x+16) and thats as far as you can factor without using the quadratic formula.
