I really need some help factoring some equations please. These don't neccessarily have to be in the real numbers either so
1.) 4x^4 + 3x^2 - 1
2.) 9c^4 + 5c^2 + 1
3.) x^3 + x^2 + 4
4.) (a+b)^2 + 7(a+b) + 12
2) Isn't correct, sorry.Originally Posted by earboth
doesn't factor over the reals. The way I would approach this, then would be to set . The solution is , so
, or you can take the square root of (i.e. solve for c, not ) and string the four factors together. Don't forget the extra 9!
