Here's the question you clicked on:

Part 1: Create a difference of squares binomial or a perfect square trinomial that can be factored multiple times. (1 point) Part 2: Provide the factors of this polynomial. (2 points) Part 3: Explain, in complete sentences, the process you used to create the binomial/trinomial. (2 points) I know how to make a difference of squares binomial and perfect squares one, but some parts of the question are unclear to me so yeah.
All right. Where are you confused here?
Can you create one on your own, Lou?
Yeah Difference of squares- (r+2)(r-2) Perfect squares- (r+7)^2
That's right. You already completed part II!
Um, I used my brain and rememberd difference of squares is always (a+b)(a-b) and perfect squares is always (a+b)^2 or (a-b)^2 and came up with one.
remembered* and would that just be it?
That's totally correct :) Yes.
Just write something like: I made an expression in the form \(a^2 - b^2\), or \((a + b)^2\)(in the case of a perfect square).
Wait hey what would be part I? would I just multiply what I did for part II to get it?
Like you said: (r + 2)(r - 2) and (r + 2)^2
Though, multiply it out to simplify it.
K that's what I thought :) thx a ton! :)
