    Difference of squares. \[a^2-b^2=(a+b)(a-b) \]

    a+ b <---first binomial a - b<---second binomial just substitue a and b to the right values

    Yes that's what I am having trouble finding though. Because the question states write 2 binomials whose product is x squared - 25

    okay here's a hint \[a^2 - b^2 \implies (a+b)(a-b)\] so \[x^2 - 4 \implies (x + 2)(x-2)\] \[x^2 - 9 \implies (x+3)(x-3)\] \[x^2 - 16 \implies (x+4)(x-4)\] are you getting it now?

    so a bionomial for x squared -25 could be (x+5)?

    So the first formula was p(n)=n(n-1) then it was P(6)=6(6-1) then it was P(6)=6(5) and then P(6)=30

    multiply the factors means you multiply the factors <--that will give you 30 write the formula over is just copying the formula but substitute 6

    if the start is p(n) = then you rewrite the formula... n(n-1)
