# FACTORING IN ALGEBRA USING ALGEBRA FORMULAS, SOLVED EXAMPLES, EXERCISE PROBLEMS WITH ANSWERS

Formulas required for Factoring In Algebra
if you have not already done so.

That knowledge is a prerequisite here.

## Example 1 : Factoring In Algebra

Factorize 64a3 - 336a2 + 588a - 343

solution to Example 1 of Factoring In Algebra :

Let P = 64a3 - 336a2 + 588a - 343
We know
64 = 4 x 4 x 4 = 43;
336 = 7 x 48 = 7 x 3 x 16 = 3 x 42 x 7;
588 = 7 x 84 = 7 x 7 x 12 = 72 x 3 x 4 = 3 x 4 x 72;
343 = 7 x 49 = 7 x 7 x 7 = 73
∴ P = (4a)3 - 3(4a)2(7) + 3(4a)(7)2 - 73
This looks like
(first term)3 - 3(first term)2(second term)
+ 3(first term)(second term)2 - (second term)3
which is equal to
(first term - second term)3 [See Formula 7],
with (4a) in place of first term and 7 in place of second term.
Applying this Formula here, we get
P = (4a - 7)3.

Thus Algebra Factoring of 64a3 - 336a2 + 588a - 343by using Algebra Formulas gave the factors as (4a - 7)3. Ans.

## Example 2 : Factoring In Algebra

Solved Example 2 of Factoring In Algebra :

Factorize a6 + 54a3 + 729

solution to Example 2 of Factoring In Algebra :

Let P = a6 + 54a3 + 729
We know 729 = 9 x 81 = 9 x 3 x 27 = 27 x 27 = 272; 54 = 2 x 27;
Let t = a3; then a6 = (a3)2 = t2
∴ P = t2 + 2(27)t + (27)2
This looks like a2 + 2ab + b2 which is equal to (a + b)2 [ See Formula 1], with (t) in place of a and 27 in place of b
∴ P = (t + 27)2
(t + 27) = a3 + 33 = (a + 3){a2 - a(3) + 32} [See Formula 4]
= (a + 3)(a2 - 3a + 9)
∴ P = (t + 27)2 = {(a + 3)(a2 - 3a + 9)}2= (a + 3)2(a2 - 3a + 9)2.

Thus Algebra Factoring of a6 + 54a3 + 729by using Algebra Formulas gave the factors as (a + 3)2(a2 - 3a + 9)2. Ans.

## Example 3 : Factoring In Algebra

Solved Example 3 of Factoring In Algebra :

If x3 + y3 + z3 = 3xyz, show that either x + y + z = 0 or x = y = z

solution to Example 3 of Factoring In Algebra :

By data x3 + y3 + z3 = 3xyzx3 + y3 + z3 - 3xyz = 0
We have a3 + b3 + c3 - 3abc = (a + b + c)(a2 + b2 + c2 - ab - bc - ca) [See Formula 9]
Applying this here, we get
(x + y + z)(x2 + y2 + z2 - xy - yz - zx) = 0
⇒ either (x + y + z) = 0 or (x2 + y2 + z2 - xy - yz - zx) = 0
Let P = (x2 + y2 + z2 - xy - yz - zx)
Multiplying both sides with 2, we get
2P = (2x2 + 2y2 + 2z2 - 2xy - 2yz - 2zx)
Writng 2x2 as x2 + x2, 2y2 as y2 + y2 and 2z2 as z2 + z2 and regrouping the terms, we get
2P = {(x2 + y2 - 2xy) + (y2 + z2 - 2yz) + (z2 + x2 - 2zx)}
= {(x - y)2 + (y - z)2 + (z - x)2}
P = 0 ⇒ 2P = 2 x 0 = 0 ⇒ {(x - y)2 + (y - z)2 + (z - x)2} = 0
SUM OF SQUARES OF THREE TERMS IS ZERO ⇒ EACH TERM IS ZERO.
∴ (x - y) = 0, (y - z) = 0 and (z - x) = 0 ⇒ x = y, y = z and z = x
x = y = z
Thus, If x3 + y3 + z3 = 3xyz, then either x + y + z = 0 or x = y = z.

Thus, by Algebra Factoring of x3 + y3 + z3 - 3xyz,
by using Algebra Formulas, we have proved that
either x + y + z = 0 or x = y = z if x3 + y3 + z3 = 3xyz.

## Example 4 : Factoring In Algebra

Solved Example 4 of Factoring In Algebra :

Factorize (4x - 3y)3 + (y - 3x)3 + (2y - x)3

solution to Example 4 of Factoring In Algebra :

Let P = (4x - 3y)3 + (y - 3x)3 + (2y - x)3
Let A = (4x - 3y), B = (y - 3x) and C = (2y - x)
Then A + B + C = (4x - 3y) + (y - 3x) + (2y - x) = 4x - 4x + 3y - 3y = 0
We can prove If A + B + C = 0, A3 + B3 + C3 = 3ABC
For proof, see the Example 12 of Algebra Formulas.
∴ A + B + C = 0 ⇒ A3 + B3 + C3 = 3ABC
∴ P = (4x - 3y)3 + (y - 3x)3 + (2y - x)3= A3 + B3 + C3 and also A + B + C = 0
∴ P = 3ABC = 3(4x - 3y)(y - 3x)(2y - x).

Thus Algebra Factoring of (4x - 3y)3 + (y - 3x)3 + (2y - x)3by using Algebra Formulas gave the factors as 3(4x - 3y)(y - 3x)(2y - x). Ans.

## Progressive Learning of Math : Factoring In Algebra

Recently, I have found a series of math curricula
(Both Hard Copy and Digital Copy) developed by a Lady Teacher
who taught everyone from Pre-K students to doctoral students
and who is a Ph.D. in Mathematics Education.

This series is very different and advantageous
over many of the traditional books available.
These give students tools that other books do not.
Other books just give practice.
These teach students “tricks” and new ways to think.

These build a student’s new knowledge of concepts
from their existing knowledge.
These provide many pages of practice that gradually
increases in difficulty and provide constant review.

These also provide teachers and parents with lessons
on how to work with the child on the concepts.

The series is low to reasonably priced and include

Elementary Math curriculum

and

Algebra Curriculum.
