# Strange factoring in e = (x+1)^3*(x+2)^3*(x+3)^3*(x+4)^3

After reading a question about QUORA I had fun with Sage to test expressions factoring.
If I ask to factorize e = (x+1)^3*(x+2)^3*(x+3)^3 everything is ok.
But when I ask to factorize e = (x+1)^3*(x+2)^3*(x+3)^3*(x+4)^3 the result surprises me and I do not understand why!
Here is my script and the results.

```
var('q')
e = (x+1)^3*(x+2)^3*(x+3)^3
print e
print "solve: ", solve(e,x)
#
R = ComplexField(16)['x'] # 16 donne 3 décimales et 32 donne 8 décimales
q = R(e)
print "factor: ", factor(q)
print
e = (x+1)^3*(x+2)^3*(x+3)^3*(x+4)^3
print e
print "solve: ", solve(e,x)
#
R = ComplexField(16)['x'] # 16 donne 3 décimales
q = R(e)
print factor(q)
print
#
R = ComplexField(32)['x'] # 32 donne 8 décimales
q = R(e)
print factor(q)
```

Now the results

```
(x + 3)^3*(x + 2)^3*(x + 1)^3
solve: [
x == -3,
x == -2,
x == -1
]
factor: (x + 1.000)^3 * (x + 2.000)^3 * (x + 3.000)^3
(x + 4)^3*(x + 3)^3*(x + 2)^3*(x + 1)^3
solve: [
x == -4,
x == -3,
x == -2,
x == -1
]
(x + 0.8452 - 0.1196*I) * (x + 0.8452 + 0.1196*I) * (x + 1.115 - 0.4330*I) * (x + 1.115 + 0.4330*I) * (x
+ 1.764 - 1.048*I) * (x + 1.764 + 1.048*I) * (x + 2.528) * (x + 2.988 - 1.554*I) * (x + 2.988 + 1.554*I)
* (x + 4.457 - 1.231*I) * (x + 4.457 + 1.231*I) * (x + 5.134)
(x + 1.00000000)^3 * (x + 2.00000000)^3 * (x + 3.00000000)^3 * (x + 4.00000000)^3
```

As you can see when I the use of **ComplexField(16)** give me 12 roots (10 complex ans 2 false reals for me).This is totally different of **ComplexField(32)** which give the right answer.
Why? Thank you in advance for enlightening my lantern.
