1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

hello guys

we are doing partial fraction, and I have trouble factoring.

2. Relevant equations

for instance, this one: X^4 +X^5 +4

how do I factor this polynomials?

3. The attempt at a solution

After several attempts, I figure out its factors are (x^2 +1) (x^2 +4)

is there a systematic ways to factor x^3 or x^4 or even x^5?

than you
