 Question 216187: Hi, I'm taking an online college algebra class but can't quite recall all the review concepts and am really stuck on this problem-- Factor the expression completely: 4x^4 + 1 + 3x² Answer: (2x² + x + 1)(2x² - x - 1) I can't figure out how to get the answer, it won't factor like a regular trinomial and doesn't come out right if I separate out the x², for instance. And since I've been just trying to learn online so far (my textbook hasn't arrived yet), I really don't get how each set of terms has three factors instead of two. Hope my question makes sense, my math-speak probably isn't too great. I would really appreciate any help you can give me. And feel free to dumb it down! Also if you know where I could find more problems similar to this for practice, that would be fantastic. Thanks-- EL Click here to see answer by stanbon(57967)

 Question 217259: Please help me solve this rational equation, this is a sample problem and I have the answer we are suppose to study this but I'm not sure how they got certain numbers. 5/2x = 17/18 - 1/3x I know that x cancels out o this is as far as I got then started getting confused. 18x x 5/2x = 18x (17/18 - 1/3x 18x x 5/2x = 18x x 17/18 - 18x x 1/3x 45 = 17x - 6 45+ 6 = 17x - 6 + 6 51=17x 51/17=17x/17 3=x I got lost starting at 45= 17x - 6 I don't know how they got the 45 and 17 so therefore I got confused through out the rest.
