= 42

= 52

= 62

These are perfect squares!

You should be able to list the first 15 perfect squares in 30 seconds…

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!!!

1 factor x 2 25

No

1. Factor x2 - 25

x2 – 25

When factoring, use your factoring table.

Do you have a GCF?

Are the Difference of Squares steps true?

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!

Factoring ChartThis chart will help you to determine which method of factoring to use.TypeNumber of Terms

1. GCF 2 or more

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

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!

  • 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!
