ya title is pretty much all i need (x^3 - 8)
if you could factor that it would be of great help

whatdofisheat said:thanks for the formula i have never seen that before
but another methode we are trying to use is synthetic division
if anyone can do it that way it would also help
thanks

Factoring a polynomial means finding the expressions that can be multiplied together to get the original polynomial. It is essentially the reverse process of multiplying polynomials.
To factor a polynomial with a degree higher than 2, such as (x^3 - 8), you can use the difference of cubes formula. In this case, the factors would be (x - 2) and (x^2 + 2x + 4).
Yes, you can factor a polynomial with complex or imaginary roots by using the quadratic formula or by using the quadratic formula method.
Factoring a polynomial can help us simplify complex expressions and solve equations more easily. It can also help us identify important characteristics of the polynomial, such as its roots and degree.
Yes, there are other methods for factoring polynomials, such as the difference of squares formula and the grouping method. It is important to choose the most efficient method based on the characteristics of the polynomial.
