Section 6.5

Reference: Examples 3 and 4

Factor each polynomial completely. If a polynomial is prime say so.

Note: See page 303 "Factoring a Difference or Sum of Two Cubes" to factor (m3+n3). This is a good example of factoring by long division and leads to the formula below.

a + b = (a + b)(a^2 -ab + b^2).
