## Definition

They are those products that are governed by fixed rules and whose result can be found by simple inspection. Its also called “Algebraic Identities”. They are those products whose development is classic and for this reason it is easily recognized

## Square of a binomial

- Binomial squared sum: A binomial squared (sum) is equal to the square of the first term, plus the double product of the first by the second plus the second square.

(a + b) 2 = a2 + 2 • a • b + b2 Example: (x + 3) 2 = x 2 + 2 • x • 3 + 3 2 = x 2 + 6 x + 9

- Binomial of squared subtraction: A binomial squared (subtraction) is equal is equal to the square of the first term, minus the double product of the first by the second, plus the second square.

(a – b) 2 = a2 – 2 • a • b + b2

Example: (2x – 3) 2 = (2x) 2 – 2 • 2x • 3 + 3 2 = 4×2 – 12 x + 9

## Conjugated binomials

Conjugated binomials or sum for difference

- A sum for difference equals difference of squares.

(a + b) • (a – b) = a2 – b2

Example: (2x + 5) • (2x – 5) = (2 x) 2 – 52 = 4×2 – 25

## Binomials with common term

- Product of two binomials that have a common term

(x + a) (x + b) = x2 + (a + b) x + ab

Example: (x + 2) (x + 3) = x2 + (2 + 3) x + 2 • 3 = x2 + 5x + 6

## Cube of a binomial

Binomial cube or Binomial cube

- Binomial of cube sum: A binomial of cube (sum) is equal to the cube of the first, plus three times the square of the first by the second, plus three times the first by the square of the second, plus the cube of the second.

(a + b) 3 = a3 + 3 • a2 • b + 3 • a • b2 + b3 Example (x + 3) 3 = x 3 + 3 • x2 • 3 + 3 • x • 32 + 33 = x 3 + 9×2 + 27x + 27

- Cube binomial subtraction: A cube binomial (subtraction) is equal to the cube of the first, minus three times the square of the first by the second, plus three times the first by the square of the second, minus the cube of the second.

(a – b) 3 = a3 – 3 • a2 • b + 3 • a • b2 – b Example: (2x – 3) 3 = (2x) 3 – 3 • (2x) 2 • 3 + 3 • 2x • 32 – 33 = 8x 3 – 36 x2 + 54 x – 27

## Other products

- Trinomial squared: A trinomial squared equals the square of the first, plus the square of the second, plus the square of the third, plus twice the first for the second, plus double the first for the third, plus double the second by the third party.

(a + b + c) 2 = a2 + b2 + c2 + 2 • a • b + + 2 • a • c + 2 • b • c Example: (x2 – x + 1) 2 = (x2) 2 + ( −x) 2 + 12 +2 • x2 • (−x) + 2 x2 • 1 + 2 • (−x) • 1 = x4 + x2 + 1 – 2×3 + 2×2 – 2x = x4 – 2×3 + 3×2 – 2x + one

- Sum of cubes

a3 + b3 = (a + b) • (a2 – ab + b2) Example; 8×3 + 27 = (2x + 3) (4×2 – 6x + 9)

- Cube difference

a3 – b3 = (a – b) • (a2 + ab + b2) 8×3 – 27 = (2x – 3) (4×2 + 6x + 9)
