Hi, I was confused if I was factoring high number exponents completely
For example: x8-22x7+121x6
I just made it into a simple polinomial inside, by doing x6(x2-22x+121)
Then I factored it down to x6(x-11)(x-11) which also equals x6(x-11)2
Is this really factoring it down completely?
Because I did it with other polynomials such as x3+16x2+16x and turned it into x2(x+8)(x+8)
As well with 4x6-12x5+9x4 and factored it down to x4(2x-3)(2x-3)
Am I really factoring it down completely? Because I did this with all my problems, taking out the x with the lowest exponents then turning the ones into the paranthesis into simple polynomials and factoring that instead.
