Finding the product of two binomials with the same terms and opposite signs? You're finding the product of a sum and a difference! Use the formula for the product of a sum and a difference to quickly find the answer! This tutorial shows you how.
Multiplying monomials like (a + b) and (a - b) is really important when it comes to factoring, so if you want to get good at factoring, you're going to have to understand how to multiply a sum like (a + b) with a difference like (a - b)!
Want to square a number? Just take the number and multiply it by itself! If you square an integer, you get a perfect square! Check out squaring in this tutorial!
Anytime you square an integer, the result is a perfect square! The numbers 4, 9, 16, and 25 are just a few perfect squares, but there are infinitely more! Check out this tutorial, and then see if you can find some more perfect squares!
If you learn about algebra, then you'll see polynomials everywhere! In this tutorial, you'll learn the definition of a polynomial and see some of the common names for certain polynomials.
