1 MODULE - Specil Products nd Fctoriztion 4 SPECIAL PRODUCTS AND FACTORIZATION In n erlier lesson you hve lernt multipliction of lgebric epressions, prticulrly polynomils. In the study of lgebr, we come cross certin products which occur very frequently. By becoming fmilir with them, lot of time nd lbour cn be sved s in those products, multipliction is performed without ctully writing down ll the steps. For emple, products, such s 08 08, 97 97, 04 96, , cn be esily clculted if you know the products ( b), ( b), ( b) ( b), ( b) respectively. Such products re clled specil products. Fctoriztion is process of finding the fctors of certin given products such s b, 8b, etc. We will consider fctoring only those polynomils in which coefficients re integers. In this lesson, you will lern bout certin specil products nd fctoriztion of certin polynomils. Besides, you will lern bout finding HCF nd LCM of polynomils by fctoriztion. In the end you will be mde fmilir with rtionl lgebric epressions nd to perform fundmentl opertions on rtionl epressions. OBJECTIVES After studying this lesson, you will be ble to write formule for specil products ( ± b), ( b) ( b), ( ) ( b), ( b) ( b b ), ( b) ( b b ), ( ± b) nd ( b) (c d); clculte squres nd cubes of numbers using formule; fctorise given polynomils including epressions of the forms b, ± b ; fctorise polynomils of the form b c ( 0) by splitting the middle term; determine HCF nd LCM of polynomils by fctoriztion; 00 Mthemtics Secondry Course

Similrly, in lgebr, since ( y) ( y) y, we sy tht ( y) nd ( y) re fctors of the product ( y ). Fctoriztion of polynomil is process of writing the polynomil s product of two (or more) polynomils. Ech polynomil in the product is clled fctor of the given polynomil. In fctoriztion, we shll restirct ourselves, unless otherwise stted, to finding fctors of the polynomils over integers, i.e. polynomils with integrl coefficients. In such cses, it is required tht the fctors, too, be polynomils over integers. Polynomils of the type y will not be considered s being fctorble into ( y)( y) these fctors re not polynomils over integers. becuse A polynomil will be sid to be completely fctored if none of its fctors cn be further epressed s product of two polynomils of lower degree nd if the integer coefficients hve no common fctor other thn or. Thus, complete fctoriztion of ( 4) is ( 4). On the other hnd the fctoriztion (4 ) (4 ) of (6 4 ) is not complete since the fctor (4 ) cn be further fctorised s ( ) ( ). Thus, complete fctoriztion of (6 4 ) is ( ) ( ) (4 ). In fctoriztion, we shll be mking full use of specil products lernt erlier in this lesson.
