Example 3 Factor (  a  +  b ) 2  – (  c  –  d ) 2 Example 4 Factor  y 2  + 9.  Even though  y 2  and 9 are square numbers, the expression  y 2  + 9 is  not  a  difference  of squares and is  not factorable.  Many polynomials require more than one method of factoring to be completely factored into a  product of polynomials. Because of this, a sequence of factoring methods must be used.
