= 22

= 32

= 42

= 52

= 62

These are perfect squares!

Review: Multiply (x – 2)(x + 2)

Notice the middle terms eliminate each other!

This is called the difference of squares.


Difference of squares

Difference of Squares

a2 - b2 = (a - b)(a + b)or

a2 - b2 = (a + b)(a - b)

The order does not matter!!


4 steps for factoring difference of squares

4 Steps for factoringDifference of Squares

1. Are there only 2 terms?

2. Is the first term a perfect square?

3. Is the last term a perfect square?

4. Is there subtraction (difference) in the problem?

If all of these are true, you can factor using this method!!!

Factor x 2 y 2

Factor x2 – y2

  • (x + y)(x + y)

  • (x – y)(x + y)

  • (x + y)(x – y)

  • (x – y)(x – y)

Remember, the order doesn’t matter!


4 factor 75x 2 12

Yes! GCF = 3

4. Factor 75x2 – 12

Yes

3(25x2 – 4)

When factoring, use your factoring table.

Factor 18c 2 8d 2

Factor 18c2 + 8d2

  • prime

  • 2(9c2 + 4d2)

  • 2(3c – 2d)(3c + 2d)

  • 2(3c + 2d)(3c + 2d)

You cannot factor using difference of squares because there is no subtraction!


Factor 64 4m 2

Factor -64 + 4m2

  • prime

  • (2m – 8)(2m + 8)

  • 4(-16 + m2)

  • 4(m – 4)(m + 4)

Rewrite the problem as 4m2 – 64 so the subtraction is in the middle!

2. Diff. Of Squares 2

3. Trinomials 3


Review multiply y 2 2 y 2 y 2

Review: Multiply (y + 2)2(y + 2)(y + 2)

Do you remember these?

(a + b)2 = a2 + 2ab + b2 (a - b)2 = a2 – 2ab + b2

y2

First terms:

Outer terms:

Inner terms:

Last terms:

Combine like terms.

y2 + 4y + 4

Using the formula,

(y + 2)2 = (y)2 + 2(y)(2) + (2)2

(y + 2)2 = y2 + 4y + 4

Which one is quicker?

+2y

+2y

+4


1 factor x 2 6x 9

1) Factor x2 + 6x + 9

Perfect Square Trinomials

(a + b)2 = a2 + 2ab + b2 (a - b)2 = a2 – 2ab + b2

Does this fit the form of our perfect square trinomial?

  • Is the first term a perfect square?

    Yes, a = x

    2)Is the last term a perfect square?

    Yes, b = 3

  • Is the middle term twice the product of the a and b?

    Yes, 2ab = 2(x)(3) = 6x

Since all three are true, write your answer!

(x + 3)2

You can still factor the other way but this is quicker!


2 factor y 2 16y 64

2) Factor y2 – 16y + 64

Perfect Square Trinomials

(a + b)2 = a2 + 2ab + b2 (a - b)2 = a2 – 2ab + b2

Does this fit the form of our perfect square trinomial?

  • Is the first term a perfect square?

    Yes, a = y

    2)Is the last term a perfect square?

    Yes, b = 8

  • Is the middle term twice the product of the a and b?

    Yes, 2ab = 2(y)(8) = 16y

Since all three are true, write your answer!

(y – 8)2


Factor m 2 12m 36

Factor m2 – 12m + 36

  • (m – 6)(m + 6)

  • (m – 6)2

  • (m + 6)2

  • (m – 18)2


3 factor 4 p 2 4p 1

3) Factor 4p2 + 4p + 1

Perfect Square Trinomials

(a + b)2 = a2 + 2ab + b2 (a - b)2 = a2 – 2ab + b2

Does this fit the form of our perfect square trinomial?

  • Is the first term a perfect square?

    Yes, a = 2p

    2)Is the last term a perfect square?

    Yes, b = 1

  • Is the middle term twice the product of the a and b?

    Yes, 2ab = 2(2p)(1) = 4p

Since all three are true, write your answer!

(2p + 1)2


4 factor 25x 2 110xy 121y 2

Perfect Square Trinomials

(a + b)2 = a2 + 2ab + b2 (a - b)2 = a2 – 2ab + b2

4) Factor 25x2 – 110xy + 121y2

Since all three are true, write your answer!

(5x – 11y)2

Does this fit the form of our perfect square trinomial?

Is the first term a perfect square?

Yes, a = 5x

Is the last term a perfect square?

Yes, b = 11y

Is the middle term twice the product of the a and b?

Yes, 2ab = 2(5x)(11y) = 110xy


Factor 9k 2 12k 4

Factor 9k2 + 12k + 4

  • (3k + 2)2

  • (3k – 2)2

  • (3k + 2)(3k – 2)

  • I’ve got no clue…I’m lost!


Factor 2r 2 12r 18

Factor 2r2 + 12r + 18

  • prime

  • 2(r2 + 6r + 9)

  • 2(r – 3)2

  • 2(r + 3)2

  • 2(r – 3)(r + 3)

Don’t forget to factor the GCF first!
