Factor each

26x^{2} + 34^{4}

Tutors, please sign in to answer this question.

26x^{2} + 34x^{4}

2x^{2}(13 + 17x^{2})

To factor 26x^2 + 34x^4, our basic strategy is to decide what belongs inside & outside a pair of parentheses.

1. Factor the integers:

= 2(13x^2 + 17x^4)

2. Factor the variables:

= 2x^2(13 + 17x^2)

I hope that helps!
