    Okay .. i suck at using the equation thingy on this website.. but i do know maths.. aloT for a tenth grader .. so here goes..

    27x^6 +125y^6
    can be written as

    (3x^2)^3 + (5y^2)^3
    can be represented using the identity a^3 + b^3 = (a+b)(a^2+ b^2 - ab)
    whre a=(3x^2) ... b=(5y^2)
    (3x^2 + 5y^2){9x^4 + 25y^4 - 15(xy)^2}

    =(3x^2 + 5y^2){9x^4 + 25y^4 -2*15(xy)^2 + 15(xy)^2}

    =(3x^2 + 5y^2){(3x^2 - 5y^2)^2 +15(xy)^2)}
    ..


    DONE
    plz dont get freaked out.. its easy.. just write it on a piece of a paper and you'll see
    Plz thank the post if u like it.
