**[SOLVED] factorizing x^5y^2 + x^2y^5**

factorize:

[tex]x^5y^2 + x^2y^5[/tex]

## The Attempt at a Solution

I have attempted to use difference of two squares by re-arranging as:

[tex]x^5y^2 + y^5x^2[/tex]

but this doesn't get me anywhere

Take out common things.

[tex]x^2y^2(x^3+y^3)[/tex]

Now use the expansion for [tex](x^3+y^3)[/tex]

[tex]x^2y^2(x^3+y^3)[/tex]

Now use the expansion for [tex](x^3+y^3)[/tex]
