Factorize fully 48π to the
fourth power plus 48π squared π minus 15π squared.

We begin by observing that the
coefficients of all three terms are multiples of three. Hence, we can factor the entire
trinomial by three, which gives us three multiplied by 16π to the fourth power
plus 16π squared π minus five π squared. Now consider the structure of
the trinomial. The first term involves π to
the fourth power, which is equal to π squared all squared. And the third term involves π
squared. The central term involves a
product of π squared and π. This suggests that the factored
form of the trinomial is π΄π squared plus π΅π multiplied by πΆπ squared plus
π·π, for values of π΄, π΅, πΆ, and π· to be determined.

We now need to find two numbers
whose sum is equal to the coefficient of π squared π, in this case 16, and
whose product is equal to the product of the coefficients of the first and last
terms. 16 multiplied by negative five
is equal to negative 80. The factor pairs of 80 are as
shown. As the product should be
negative 80, we require a factor pair with opposite signs such that their sum is
equal to 16. The correct pair are 20 and
negative four. Rewriting the second term in
the trinomial as the sum of two terms with these coefficients gives 16π to the
fourth power plus 20π squared π minus four π squared π minus five π
squared.

Separating this four-term
expression into two binomials and factoring each separately gives four π
squared multiplied by four π squared plus five π minus π multiplied by four
π squared plus five π. Hence, the fully factored form
of the trinomial is three multiplied by four π squared minus π multiplied by
four π squared plus five π.
