Answer:The answer to your question is a = 16

Step-by-step explanation:Polynomial(y – 4) (y² + 4y + 16)

Process1.- Multiply y by each term of the polynomial2.- Multiply -4 by each term of the polynomial-4(y² + 4y + 16) = -4y² – 16y – 64

3.- Write both resultsy³ + 4y² +

16y– 4y²– 16y– 64In bold we notice that a = 16
