Difference fo cubes: Pattern
The difference or sum of two perfect cube terms have factors of a binomial times a trinomial.
Step 1: Factor out the GCF, if necessary.
Step 2:Write each term as a perfect cube.
Step 3: Identify the given variables.
Step 4:The terms of the binomial are the cube roots of the terms of the original polynomial.
The first term of the trinomial is the first term of the binomial squared. The second term of the trinomial is the opposite sign of the product of the two binomial terms. The last term of the trinomial is the last term of the binomial squared.
Hint to remember the signs of the factors: S.O.A.P. (Same sign, Opposite sign, Always Plus)
Example 3: Factor completely.
Step 1: Factor out the GCF, if necessary.
Step 2:Write each term as a perfect cube.
Step 3: Identify the given variables.
Step 4:The terms of the binomial are the cube roots of the terms of the original polynomial.
