The product of a sum and a difference of two values is equal to the difference of their squares. If both of those quantities are square roots of integers, for example p and q such that a = √p and b = √q then performing the expansion squares the radicals leaving only integers. (√p + √q)(√p  √q) = (a + b)(a  b) = a^2  b^2 = p  q If only one of the quantities is a square root of an integer we get (p + √q)(p  √q) = (a^2 + b)(a^2  b) = a^4  b^2 = p^2  q
