6.Chose the correct information to complete the paragraph proof of the difference of squares identity.

-To prove that the difference of squares, x^2-y^2, can be factored into polynomials with real coefficients, begin with a diagram of a square of side length x OR x^2 OR y OR y^2 with a small square of side length x OR x^2 OR y OR y^2 cut from one corner.

-Cut the diagram into Rectangle #1 with dimension y by x-y OR x by y and Rectangle #2 with dimensions x-y by x-y OR x by x-y.

-Then reconnect the rectangles along the edge with dimension x-y OR y OR x.

-This creates a square with dimension x by x OR a rectangle with dimension x+y by x-y OR a rectangle with dimensions x-y by x-y. Since the area of the original shape has increased OR decreased OR remains constant, x^2-y^2 must equal (x-y)(x+y)
