Can you factorize this expression please, x12 - y12 = ?

x12y12 = x6 × 2y6 × 2 = (x6)2 – (y6)2

= (x6y6) (x6 + y6)

= ((x3)2 – (y3)2) ((x2)3 + (y2)3)

= (x3y3) (x3 + y3) (x2 + y2) ((x)2x2y2 + (y2)2 )

= (xy) (x2 + xy + y2) (x + y) (x2xy + y2) (x2 + y2) (x4x2y2 + y4)

x12 - y12  
(x- y6)(x+ y6)
using Identity (a+b)(a-b) = a2 - b2

but  mr.Shikhar Tiwari here there is no square so why did u used the identity :-(a+b)(a-b) = a2 - b2
