Find the factors for


Consider the given equation above

Did you notice that the first three terms of the given equation is a perfect trinomial square? Well, let's group the first three terms as follows

At the last three terms, when you group and take out their negative sign, then it will be a perfect trinomial square, too as follows

Next, rewrite the grouped terms in terms of exponential function as follows
Since the above equation can be factored by the difference of two squares in which the grouped terms are considered as a single term, then the factors of the given equation are
