### Factorization

Factorization is the process of expressing the given algebraic expression as the product of two or more algebraic expression or terms. For example, 2x+5x2  = x(2 + 5x) can be expressed as the product of x and 2 +5x.i.e 2x+52 = x(2 + 5x).When an algebraic expression is the product of two or more expressions, each of these expressions is called a factor of a given expression.In the above examples, x and 2x+5x are the factors of 2x+5x2.

Factorization of the expression of the form a2-b2

(i) Take a square piece of paper with one side 'a' unit whose area becomes as sq.units.

(ii) In one of the corners of the square, cut off a small square of side 'b' units. The area of this small squares is so units.

(iii) Let's cut a2-b2 diagonally as shown in the figure.

(iv) Arrange two parts to make a rectangle.

Length of the rectangle = (a+b) units

Breagth of the rectangle = (a-b)

Now, area of the rectangle = length × breadth

= (a+b)(a-b)

= a2-b2

∴ Area of rectangle = (a2-b2) sq.unit

∴ a2-b2 = (a+b)(a-b)

Some useful formula

• (a+b)= a2+2ab+b2 or (a+b)2+4ab
• (a-b)2 = a2-2ab+b2 or, (a+b)2-4ab
• a2-b= (a+b)(a-b)
• a2+b2 = (a+b)2-2ab or, (a-b)2+2ab
.
