Consider the following solution:
The solution set is .
Is this a correct solution? Would you have any suggestion to offer the person who used this approach?
The given solution correct or incorrect and offer the suggestion to the person who used this approach.
i) The Difference of Two Squares pattern is .
ii) Multiplication is commutative, so the order of writing the factors is not important. For example, can also be written as .
iii) if and only if or or .
The following steps have been followed to find out the solutions:
Step-1: Find out the common monomial factor and divide out from the equation.
Step-2: Convert the equation from the step-1 in the form of 2 squares with subtraction and compare with the difference of two squares pattern.
Step-3: Apply the difference of two squares pattern to the equation available in the step-2.
Step-4: Solve the equation and write the solutions set.
1) The given equation is .
The common monomial factor available in the above equation is 6.
So, the equation can be written as, .
Divide both sides of the equation by 6. Remember that this process has been skipped in the approach.
2) The above equation can be written as,
