$\displaystyle \begin{array}{rcl}x^3+4x &=& 8 \\\\ x^3 &=& 84x \\\\ x^6 &=& 6464x+16x^2 \\\\ x^6+64x &=& 16x^2+64\ =\ 16(x^2+4) \\\\ x^7+64x^2 &=& 16(x^3+4x)\ =\ 16\cdot8\ =\ 128\end{array}$ Last edited by Olinguito; April 6th, 2014 at 02:34 PM.

We need to know that we need to multiply both sides of the equation by $\displaystyle x^4$ to arrive at $\displaystyle x^7\,+\,64x^2$ for the expression $\displaystyle x^7$ so $\displaystyle x^7\,+\,4x^5\,=\,8x^4\text{.}$ We also need to know that we need to multiply both sides of the equation by $\displaystyle 16x$ to arrive at $\displaystyle x^7\,+\,64x^2$ for the expression $\displaystyle 64x^2$ so $\displaystyle 16x^4\,+\,64x^2\,=\,128x\text{.}$ Since $\displaystyle x^7\,=\,8x^4\,\,4x^5$ and $\displaystyle 64x^2\,=\,128x\,\,16x^4$ we get $\displaystyle x^7\,+\,64x^2\,=\,4x^5\,\,8x^4\,+\,128x\,=\,4x^5\,\,16x^3\,+\,16x^3\,\,8x^4\,\,32x^2\,+\,32x^2\,+\,128x\,=\,4x^2(x^3\,+\,4x)\,\,8x(x^3\,+\,4x)\,+\,16x^3\,+\,32x^2\,+\,128x\,=\,32x^2\,\,64x\,+\,16x^3\,+\,32x^2\,+\,128x\,=\,16x^3\,+\,6 4x\,=\,16(x^3\,+\,4x)\,=\,16\,\times\,8\,=\,\boxed {128}\text{.}$
