Special Products page 4.5 - 13 Section 4.5 Focus Exercises 1. Identify the conjugate of the given binomial. a) The conjugate of (x + 5) is b) The conjugate of (y 6) is c) The conjugate of (3y + 9) is d) The conjugate of (4w 7) is e) The conjugate of (2x 3 8) is f) The conjugate of (6y 2 1) is 2. Multiply these conjugates. Each answer should be the difference of squares. You should use the shortcut and do these in just one step. a) (x + 3)(x 3) b) (y 8)(y + 8) c) (x 9)(x + 9) d) (7 x)(7 + x) e) (9 + y)(9 y) f) (1 3y)(1 + 3y) g) (5x + 1)(5x 1) h) (3y 8)(3y + 8) i) (4x 9)(4x + 9) j) (x 2 + 4)(x 2 4) k) (3x 2 6)(3x 2 + 6) l) (x 4y)(x + 4y) m) (3x y)(3x + y) n) (x 3 y)(x 3 + y) o) (x 2 3y)(x 2 + 3y) 3. The result of multiplying a pair of conjugates is shown. Fill in each set of parentheses with an appropriate binomial. (Check your work mentally by multiplying what you wrote in each set.)
