If anyone could explain to me how to do this. It would be nice. The problem says this. ---> Using complete sentences, compare and contrast the ways to factor the "sum of two squares" and the "difference of two squares." Provide an explanation and example of each, including any similarities and differences.

You just test out the answers if you cannot factor it... FOIL Is a good way to help you factor as well :) just match the corresponding letters and multiply each time... do you get it?

sorry i do not understand your next question though.. sorry!

11. careless850

It's okay.

can not factor \(\large a^2+b^2\) ... (without imaginary numbers) \[\Large a^2-b^2\]\[\Large =a^2+ab-ab-b^2\]\[\Large =a(a+b)-b(a+b)\]\[\Large =(a+b)(a-b)\]
