How would 3x^2-27y^2 be factored completely?

  • algebra 2 -

    isnt it the difference of two squares?

    3(x^2-9y^2)=3(x-3y)*(x+3y)

  • algebra 2 -

    Yes but isnt the difference of two squares just one technique to factor polynomials?

  • algebra 2 -

    Of course. If one technique works to factor a polynomial, it is factored.
