For more advanced math, you will need to use the difference of squares in order to factor certain polynomials. This video offers the basic technique for this factoring method as well as a few examples to get you started. In order for this factoring technique to work, you will need two numbers which are squares and are being subtracted from each other. The two factors will be the original numbers added to each other as well as subtracted from one another. This fast and simple factoring method will make your math problems much easier.
