Explaining the factoring for the difference of cubes 2008-01-16
From Bill:
A student asked me where did the "difference of cubes" and "sum of cubes" come from. I did not have an answer for her. She is very bright and understands how they work but wanted to know where they derived from. Any help you can offer would be great. Thanks

A fifth degree polynomial 2006-03-13
From Forrest:
When f(x) = x5 - 3x4 - 6x3 + 3ax2 - 24 is divided by x2 - 2 the remainder is bx.
