To explain how to factor Perfect Square Trinomials and The Difference of Perfect Squares.
A visual explanation of how to factor perfect square trinomials and the difference of perfect squares with practice problems.
• Perfect Square Trinomials - (ax)2 + 2abx + b2. A perfect square trinomial is a quadratic that can be
factored into two identical binomials that take on the form of (ax+b)2 or (ax+b)(ax+b).
• Difference of Perfect Squares - a2 - b2. The difference of perfect squares is when a number is
squared and then subtracted by another squared number and can be factored as (a-b)(a+b).
Answers to the practice problems above.
