I know this simplifies to\[\left(\dfrac{2}{3}x + \dfrac{5}{3}y\right)^3 + \rm blah\]

So for the first two terms, should I use \(a^3 + b^3 = (a + b)(a^2 - ab + b^2)\)?

That'd make stuff very long.

  • hartnn
its like \((a+b)^3+(c-b)^3-(a+c)^3\)
ParthKohli
  • ParthKohli
Yeah. :-|
ParthKohli
  • ParthKohli
Wait, so\[(a + c)(a^2 + 2ab + b^2 - (a+b)(c -b) + c^2 - 2cb + b^2) - (a + c)^3\]
hartnn
  • hartnn
\(\large = 3(a+b)(a+c)(b-c)\)

How did you get that?
ParthKohli
  • ParthKohli
It's correct, but is it some sort of identity taught?
hartnn
  • hartnn
ok, first take last 2 terms, (c-b)^3-(a+c)^3 = ... ? use A^3-B^3 =...
hartnn
  • hartnn
not identity, you need to work that out...
hartnn
  • hartnn
its quite long though

\[a^3 - b^3 = (a - b)(a^2 + ab + b^2)\]So here,\[= -(b +a)(\cdots)\]Err

No shortcuts?
hartnn
  • hartnn
none that i can think of.

There's always a shortcut in exam questions. It's not like an Olympiad one.
hartnn
  • hartnn
then you must be having choices ?
ParthKohli
  • ParthKohli
No choices given. That's all.

hartnn
  • hartnn
then i'll wait for someone to suggest a shortcut.....
