Use the “difference of squares” rule to factor the following expression: 100a^664b^8
asked by
Elisa

100a^6  64b^8.
First, take the sqrt of each term:
(10a^3 + 8b^4)(10a^3  8b^4),
Factor again:
2(5a^3 + 4b^4)*2(5a^3  4b^4).

How can you determine if a polynomial is the difference of two squares? I think that if the polynomial is x^264 that this is a polynomial that is a difference of two squares because if you factor it out you would get (x+8)(x8).
