Expert Solution

Answer to Problem 47RE

  x2+2((x2+2)+x)2

Explanation of Solution

Given information:

Factor the expression completely.

  (x2+2)5/2+2x(x2+2)3/2+x2x2+2

Calculation:

Consider the given expression.

  (x2+2)5/2+2x(x2+2)3/2+x2x2+2

  (x2+2)5/2+2x(x2+2)3/2+x2x2+2=x2+2(x2+2)2+2x(x2+2)+x2=x2+2((x2+2)+x)2

Hence, the factors are x2+2((x2+2)+x)2
