Difference of squares intro | Mathematics II | High School Math | Khan Academy

When an expression can be viewed as the difference of two perfect squares, i.e. a²-b², then we can factor it as (a+b)(a-b). For example, x²-25 can be factored as (x+5)(x-5). This method is based on the pattern (a+b)(a-b)=a²-b², which can be verified by expanding the parentheses in (a+b)(a-b).

And what is so great about algebra anyway? This tutorial doesn't explore algebra so much as it introduces the history and ideas that underpin it.

But what if the number x squared is being added to not a square for example: X2+10 = N

Great video, and how ironic that im learning this in class and have a test soon. It's easier of you just do the square root of the number.
