25a^5+40a^2+16

25a^5+40a^2+16=5a^2(5a^3+8)+16, it can't be factored further

If you have any questions please let me know first

Is there anything else that can be done to it?

have you learnt the complex numbers?

I have missed a few days I have to make up work. I'm behind, I don't know.

factor a polynomial is to pull out the common thing and the only thing can be found in the problem is to factor out 5a^2 for the first two terms or 4 for the later two terms----25a^5+40a^2+16
