Are often used to denote sets, and lowercase letters a, b, x, y, . . usually represent elements of sets. Throughout this book, ޒdenotes the set of real numbers and ޚdenotes the set of integers. Two sets S and T are equal, denoted by S ϭ T , if S and T contain exactly the same elements. We write S T if S and T are not equal. Additional notation and terminology are listed in the following chart.

Factoring Formulas Formula (1) Difference of two squares: x 2 Ϫ y 2 ϭ ͑x ϩ y͒͑x Ϫ y͒ (2) Difference of two cubes: x 3 Ϫ y 3 ϭ ͑x Ϫ y͒͑x 2 ϩ xy ϩ y 2͒ (3) Sum of two cubes: x 3 ϩ y 3 ϭ ͑x ϩ y͒͑x 2 Ϫ xy ϩ y 2͒ Illustration 9a2 Ϫ 16 ϭ ͑3a͒2 Ϫ ͑4͒2 ϭ ͑3a ϩ 4͒͑3a Ϫ 4͒ 8a3 Ϫ 27 ϭ ͑2a͒3 Ϫ ͑3͒3 ϭ ͑2a Ϫ 3͓͒͑2a͒2 ϩ ͑2a͒͑3͒ ϩ ͑3͒2͔ ϭ ͑2a Ϫ 3͒͑4a2 ϩ 6a ϩ 9͒ 125a3 ϩ 1 ϭ ͑5a͒3 ϩ ͑1͒3 ϭ ͑5a ϩ 1͓͒͑5a͒2 Ϫ ͑5a͒͑1͒ ϩ ͑1͒2͔ ϭ ͑5a ϩ 1͒͑25a2 Ϫ 5a ϩ 1͒ Several other illustrations of the use of factoring formulas are given in the next two examples.

Thus, (2) is actually two formulas: ͑x ϩ y͒2 ϭ x 2 ϩ 2xy ϩ y 2 and ͑x Ϫ y͒2 ϭ x 2 Ϫ 2xy ϩ y 2 Similarly, (3) represents two formulas.
