# Factorize the expression $x^4-(2y-3z)^2$.

Given:

The given algebraic expression is $x^4-(2y-3z)^2$.

To do:

We have to factorize the expression $x^4-(2y-3z)^2$.

Solution:

Factorizing algebraic expressions:

Factorizing an algebraic expression implies writing the expression as a product of two or more factors. Factorization is the reverse of distribution.

An algebraic expression is factored completely when it is written as a product of prime factors.

$x^4-(2y-3z)^2$ can be written as,

$x^4-(2y-3z)^2=(x^2)^2-(2y-3z)^2$             [Since $x^4=(x^2)^2$]

Here, we can observe that the given expression is a difference of two squares. So, by using the formula $a^2-b^2=(a+b)(a-b)$, we can factorize the given expression.

Therefore,

$x^4-(2y-3z)^2=(x^2)^2-(2y-3z)^2$

$x^4-(2y-3z)^2=[x^2+(2y-3z)][x^2-(2y-3z)]$

$x^4-(2y-3z)^2=(x^2+2y-3z)(x^2-2y+3z)$

Hence, the given expression can be factorized as $(x^2+2y-3z)(x^2-2y+3z)$.
