Multiply it out. Then, you will have two terms, one will have an and one will have an . You will be able to factor out 2x.
thanks for the reply, but when i multiply it out i get x^3-64+x^3+64. What do you mean by two terms?
I was wondering if we are supposed to use the formulas : x^3 - y^3 = (x-y)(x^2 + xy + y^2) x^3 + y^3 = (x+y)(x^2 - xy + y^2)

You can use the second formula you have, if you want, but it seems easier to multiply it out: Add them together and you get the two terms I was talking about:
