I need to factor the next polynomial:
Thank you, but I already tried that to no avail.
Thank you, that worked like a charm! I already came up with the idea, but was not sure what to do with in the denominator. But since you suggested it, I took a closer look and sure enough - it worked!

1) First we need to do something with , which confused me, when I tried to solve it by myself. We need to get it in the form of and somehow. Well, is equal to , and we can add and substract 1. Therefore:
Here we go
Now, let and , and express everything in terms of x and y:
By definition , and , therefore:
Simplify:
And the answer is:
Thank you guys again, been trying to solve this tough cookie for a couple of days now.
P.S. if it is not a polynomial, then what is it?
