### Int Algebra: Factor Sums and Differences of Cubes

http://www.mindbites.com/lesson/929-int-algebra-factor-sums-and-differences-of-cubes/first# This lesson is part of a series: Intermediate Algebra In this lesson, you will learn how to factor the difference of two cubes and how to factor the sum of two cubes. Neither of these are simple factorizations, so Professor Burger will show you what the factorization is and then explain where it comes from. Additionally, he'll show you some ways to remember what these factorizations are. (x^3 - y^3) = (x - y)(x^2+xy+y^2) and (x^3+y^3) = (x+y)(x^2-xy+y^2) Taught by Professor Edward Burger, this lesson was selected from a broader, comprehensive course, Intermediate Algebra. This course and others are available from Thinkwell, Inc. The full course can be found at http://www.thinkwell.com/student/product/intermediatealgebra. The full course covers real numbers, equations and inequalities, exponents and polynomials, rational expressions, roots and radicals, relations and functions, the straight line, systems of equations, quadratic equations and quadratic inequalities, conic sections, inverse and exponential and logarithmic functions, and a variety of other AP algebra and advanced algebra.
