Math 114N Initial Post Instructions This week we continue our study of factoring. As you become more familiar with factoring, you will notice there are some special factoring problems that follow specific patterns. These patterns are known as: a difference of squares; a perfect square trinomial; a difference of cubes; and a sum of cubes. Choose two of the forms above and explain the pattern that allows you to recognize the binomial or trinomial as having special factors. Illustrate with examples of a binomial or trinomial expression that may be factored using the special techniques you are explaining. Make sure that you do not use the same example a classmate has already used! The two topics I decided to discuss about is of the difference of squares and the difference of cubes. The difference of squares simply is the subtracting between two amounts that are represented by squares. So per say if we took...
