Thank you for the fast reply

This was an exercise from my math workbook about factorization. After a lot of tries I gave up and checked the answer, but I still couldn't figure out how to do the factorization. What's the method of that?

Hi!

I'm trying to solve that how does x^4+x^2+1 become (x^2+x+1)(x^2+x+1).

Can someone help me?

I know the goal, but cant figure out how to get there
