    Factoring Special Products.. Not much.

    This stuff is really getting annoying, pretty much in class we keep doing these "Factoring Special Products." Which is just annoying!


    2 Problems.

    1. x^6 - y^6


    2. x^3y^3 + z^3


    It's so annoying for me, .

    This is a difference of squares:

    x^6-y^6=\left(x^3\right)^2-\left(y^3\right)^2

    Factor, and you will then have a sum and difference of cubes.

    2. x^3y^3 + z^3
    This is a sum of cubes:

    x^3y^3+z^3=(xy)^3+z^3.
