Unformatted text preview: a 3 + b 3 = ( a + b )( a 2 ab + b 2 ) a 3 b 3 = ( a b )( a 2 + ab + b 2 ) Sum or Difference of Two Cubes MartinGay, Beginning and Intermediate Algebra, 4ed 5 Factor x 3 + 1. Since this polynomial can be written as x 3 + 1 3 , x 3 + 1 = ( x + 1)( x 2 x + 1). Factor y 3 64. Since this polynomial can be written as y 3 4 3 , y 3 64 = ( y 4)( y 2 + 4 y + 16). Sum or Difference of Two Cubes Example: MartinGay, Beginning and Intermediate Algebra, 4ed 6 Factor 8 t 3 + s 6 . Since this polynomial can be written as (2 t ) 3 + ( s 2 ) 3 , 8 t 3 + s 6 = (2 t + s 2 )((2 t ) 2 (2 t )( s 2 ) + ( s 2 ) 2 ) = (2 t + s 2 )(4 t 2 2 s 2 t + s 4 ). Factor x 3 y 6 27 z 3 . Since this polynomial can be written as ( xy 2 ) 3 (3 z ) 3 , x 3 y 6 27 z 3 = ( xy 2 3 z )(( xy 2 ) 2 + (3 z )( xy 2 ) + (3 z ) 2 ) = ( xy 2 3 z )( x 2 y 4 + 3 xy 2 z + 9 z 2 ).
