How do you factorize x^3 - x?
2 Answers | Add Yours
The expression x^3 - x has to be factorized.
x^3 - x
= x(x^2 - 1)
= x*(x - 1)(x + 1)
The factorized form of x^3 - x is x*(x - 1)(x + 1)
`x^3 - x ` the both share x as their greatest common factor so just factor out x
`x(x - 1)(x + 1)`
the factorized form would be `x(x - 1)(x + 1)`
