Hey Tempers! Ever since we've been going over factorisation in class, one of my friends (the mathematical genius in question) has been pulling out seemingly impossible factorisable equations out of thin air, claiming they're solvable. Mind you, factorisation is not difficult for myself, not even the ones he's given me so far, which have been proven to be solvable by me, to ensure he's not trolling. But today he brought down the shirtstorm and just wrote this down on a napkin: 2abc+a²b+ab²+b²c+bc²+c²a+ca² I just say "what in the actual f*** is this?" He responds: "Solve it!" I got as far as this before getting stuck: 2abc+a²b+b²c+c²a+(ab+ac+bc)² You can either help by staring into the question with hatred, or, if you know the answer, post it! ACEDIT: If this should be moved to Blog posts, I'll PM a mod.
