# Let’s find the L.

factors of x4 + x2y2 + y4:

Add and subtract x2y2 to get,

x4 + x2y2 + y4 = x4 + x2y2 + y4 + x2y2 - x2y2

= x4 + 2x2y2 + y4 - x2y2

As we know (a + b)2 = a2 + b2 + 2ab,

So,
x4 + x2y2 + y4 = (x2 + y2)2 - x2y2

= (x2 + y2)2 – (xy)2

Apply the formula a2 – b2 = (a + b) (a-b) in (x2 + y2)2 – (xy)2to get,

= (x2 + y2-xy) (x2 + y2+xy)

Now factorise x3y + y4,

= y (x3 + y3)

Apply a3 + b3 = (a + b)(a2 + b2 – ab) in (x3 + y3)

= y (x+y)(x2 + y2 – xy)

Now factorise (x2-xy)3,

= (x2-xy)2(x2-xy)

Apply (a-b)2 = a2 + b2 – 2ab in (x2-xy)2 to get,

= [(x2)2 + (xy)2 – 2x2xy][x(x-y)]

= x2 [x2 + y2 – 2xy][x(x-y)]

As we know (a - b)2 = a2 + b2 - 2ab in ,

= x3 (x-y)2 (x-y)

= x3 (x-y)3

So the LCM of x4 + x2y2 + y4, x3y + y4, (x2-xy)3 is:

x3y (x-y)3(x+y)(x2 + y2 – xy) (x2 + y2+xy)
