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.

2
Review of 9.3 & 9.4 Define factoring. How do we check our answer after factoring? Factor: A) k 2 – 11kh + 28h 2 B) 4x 2 + 2x - 6

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

4
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: x 2 – y 2 = (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

5
Example 1: Factor each binomial. x 2 – y 2 = (x + y)(x - y) a) x 2 – 25b) 3a 2 – 48 c) 169x 2 – y 2 d) 81a 2 – 121b 2 Note: Always check for the GCF.

6
e) m² - 64 f) 3b³ - 27b g) 16y² - 81z² h)

7
Ex. 2: Apply several different factoring techniques. 1. 6x³ + 30x² - 24x - 120

8
Ex. 3: Solve equations by factoring. 1. 4y² - 25 = – 68k² = 0

9
a = 49a³
