Think About It Describe the real number values of u and v for which u + v is greater than, less than, and equal to u + v .

Divide out common factors. Note that the original expression is undefined when x = 2 (because division by zero is undefined). To make the simplified expression equivalent to the original expression, you must restrict the domain of the simplified expression by excluding the value x = 2. com. 4x + 12 in simplest form. x2 − 3x − 18 It may sometimes be necessary to change the sign of a factor by factoring out (−1) to simplify a rational expression, as shown in Example 3. E XAM P L E 3 Simplifying a Rational Expression 12 + x − x2 (4 − x)(3 + x) = 2 2x − 9x + 4 (2x − 1)(x − 4) = − (x − 4)(3 + x) (2x − 1)(x − 4) =− Checkpoint Write 3+x , 2x − 1 x≠4 Factor completely.

Factoring Special Polynomial Forms Factored Form Difference of Two Squares u2 − v2 = (u + v)(u − v) Example 9x 2 − 4 = (3x)2 − 22 = (3x + 2)(3x − 2) Perfect Square Trinomial u2 + 2uv + v2 = (u + v)2 x 2 + 6x + 9 = x 2 + 2(x)(3) + 32 = (x + 3)2 u2 − 2uv + v2 = (u − v)2 x 2 − 6x + 9 = x 2 − 2(x)(3) + 32 = (x − 3)2 Sum or Difference of Two Cubes u3 + v3 = (u + v)(u2 − uv + v2) x 3 + 8 = x 3 + 23 = (x + 2)(x 2 − 2x + 4) u3 − v3 = (u − v)(u2 + uv + v2) 27x 3 − 1 = (3x)3 − 13 = (3x − 1)(9x 2 + 3x + 1) For the difference of two squares, you can think of this form as follows.
