**Lesson 9.5: Factoring Difference of Squares, page 500**

Objectives: To factor binomials that are the difference of squares. To solve equations involving the differences of squares.

**Review of 9.3 & 9.4 Define factoring.**

How do we check our answer after factoring? Factor: A) k2 – 11kh + 28h2 B) 4x2 + 2x - 6

3
**DIFFERENCE OF TWO SQUARES**

Review Multiply using FOIL: (x – 3) (x + 3). x2 + 3x – 3x - 9 Answer: x2 – 9 Remember: the outside/inside terms cancel b/c they are opposite terms. Multiply: (y + 2)(y – 2) Answer: y2 – 4 This answer is a special case called the DIFFERENCE OF TWO SQUARES (a.k.a. DOTS).

**Factoring the Difference of Two Squares (DOTS)**

Clue 1: usually only 2 terms Clue 2: minus sign Clue 3: both terms are perfect squares General Form: x2 – y2 = (x + y)(x - y) MEMORIZE THESE PERFECT SQUARES: 1, 4, 9, 16, 25, 36, 49, 64, 81, 100, 121, 144, 169, 196, 225, 256,…, 400,…,625,…900,…,10000

**Example 1: Factor each binomial. x2 – y2 = (x + y)(x - y)**

a) x2 – 25 b) 3a2 – 48 c) 169x2 – y2 d) 81a2 – 121b2 Note: Always check for the GCF.
