Step 1
Given
P(x)=x2+x2
The given equation looks like quadratic polynomial equation.
Factorization of quadratic polynomial equation:
x2+x2=0
x2+2x1x2=0 (1x = 2x-1x)
x(x+2)1(x+2)=0 (take "x" common from first two terms and "-1" common from last two terms)
(x+2)(x1)=0 (take "x+2" common)
Step 2
factors of given polynomial x2+x2=0
x2+x2=(x+2)(x1)
And x=-2 or x = 1.
