Prove that the polynomial $(n^2+2n+1)^3+(n^2+8n+16)^3+(9n^2+42n+49)^3+(9n^2+ 48n+64)^3$is divisible by $2n^2+10n+13$.

I think I would show that the two (complex) roots of the divisor are also roots of the dividend.

I don't know how to do that. Is there a different way?

It's rather simple. Each pair of the polynomials to the power 3 has the same divisor $(n^2+2n+1)+(9n^2+48n+64)=(n^2+8n+16)+(9n^2+42n+49 )=10n^2+50n+65=5(2n^2+10n+13)$ Last edited by skipjack; April 18th, 2015 at 09:27 PM.
