## Answer to Problem 114E

The factor of the expression x6+64 is (x2+4)(x44x2+16) .

### Explanation of Solution

Given information:

The expression x6+64 .

Formula used:

The special factoring formula of sum of cubes which is expressed as,

X3+Y3=(X+Y)(X2XY+Y2)

Calculation:

Consider the given expression x6+64 .

Rewrite it as,

x6+64=(x2)3+(4)3

Recall the special factoring formula of sum of cubes which is expressed as,

X3+Y3=(X+Y)(X2XY+Y2)

Here, the values of X and Y are X=x2 and Y=4 .

x6+64=(x2)3+(4)3=(x2+4)((x2)2(x2)(4)+(4)2)=(x2+4)(x44x2+16)

Thus, the factor of expression x6+64 is (x2+4)(x44x2+16) .
