Let and let
Find all irreducible factors of .
Setting we note that
It’s clear that is irreducible over . Now, for let be the -th cyclotomic polynomial. Using well-known properties of , we have
Thus is irreducible over because cyclotomic polynomials are irreducible over . Hence, by ( 1 ) has exactly irreducible factors and they are .
