(x2 + 1)(x2 - 2)

2x to the fourth power minus 162 equals -146

No.

x cubed minus 216

There is a formula for the "difference of squares." In this case, the answer is (x2 - 5)(x2 + 5)

(3x^2 - 4y^2)(3x^2 + 4y^2)

1x to the power of 4

4(10x4 + 3)(10x4 - 3)

So x4 - 1 is the difference of squares, so x4 - 1 = (x2 - 1)(x2 + 1) = (x + 1)(x - 1)(x2 + 1).
