## Which binomials are a difference of squares?

A binomial is a Difference of Squares if both terms are perfect squares. Recall we may have to factor out a common factor first. If we determine that a binomial is a difference of squares, we factor it into two binomials. The first being the square root of the first term minus the square root of the second term.

**What is an example of a difference of squares?**

When an expression can be viewed as the difference of two perfect squares, i.e. a²-b², then we can factor it as (a+b)(a-b). For example, x²-25 can be factored as (x+5)(x-5).

**What is an example of square binomial?**

A perfect square binomial is a trinomial that when factored gives you the square of a binomial. For example, the trinomial x^2 + 2xy + y^2 is a perfect square binomial because it factors to (x + y)^2.

### What is square of binomials?

The square of a binomial is the sum of: the square of the first terms, twice the product of the two terms, and the square of the last term.

**How do you factor binomials?**

Though many different types of expressions can be classified as binomials, not all of them can be factored. In order to be factorable, a binomial has to have a difference of two squares, a difference of cubes, a sum of cubes, or a greatest common factor.

**How did you find the square of a binomial?**

To square a binomial, write out the multiplication and use the FOIL method to add the sums of the first, outer, inner and last terms. The result is the square of the binomial.

#### What are the steps to find the difference of squares?

How to Factor Difference of Squares?

- Check if the terms have the greatest common factor (GCF) and factor it out.
- Determine the numbers that will produce the same results and apply the formula: a2– b2 = (a + b) (a – b) or (a – b) (a + b)
- Check whether you can factor the remaining terms any further.

**How do you factor a square of a binomial?**

The way we use the shortcut is to follow three simple steps. Step 1: Square the first term of the binomial. Step 2: Multiply the first term and last term of the binomial together and then double that quantity (in other words multiply by 2). Step 3: Square the last term of the binomial.

**Which of the following is a square of a binomial?**

The square of a binomial is always a trinomial. It will be helpful to memorize these patterns for writing squares of binomials as trinomials. Examples: Square each binomial.

## What is Square of binomials?

**What is difference of squares in math?**

In mathematics, the difference of two squares is a squared (multiplied by itself) number subtracted from another squared number. Every difference of squares may be factored according to the identity.

**What does square the binomial mean?**

### What are examples of Binomials?

A binomial is a polynomial with two terms. For example, x − 2 x-2 x−2 and x − 6 x-6 x−6 are both binomials.

**How to prove difference of squares?**

Intro: Difference of squares pattern. Note that and in the pattern can be any algebraic expression.

**What is the formula for factoring the difference of squares?**

Check if the terms have the greatest common factor (GCF) and factor it out. Remember to include the GCF in your final answer.
