Factoring an ExpressionDate: 8/5/96 at 22:33:6 From: Anonymous Subject: Factoring an Expression Dr Math, Please help me factor this equation: x^10+x+1 Thank you for your help, Tuan Vu Date: 8/7/96 at 1:55:52 From: Doctor Pete Subject: Re: Factoring an Expression If you're looking for a factorization with integer coefficients, it is not possible. On the other hand, x^10 + x^2 + 1 = (1-x+x^2)(1+x+x^2)(1-x^4+x^6). -Doctor Pete, The Math Forum Check out our web site! http://mathforum.org/dr.math/ |
