# Verify: i) x³ + y³ = (x + y)(x² - xy + y²)

ii) x³ - y³ = (x - y)(x² + xy + y²)

**Solution:**

i) x³ + y³ = (x + y)(x² - xy + y² )

Taking the RHS,

(x + y)(x² - xy + y²) = x(x² - xy + y² ) + y(x² - xy + y²)

= x³ - x²y + xy² + x²y - xy² + y³

= x³ + y³ = LHS

ii) x³ - y³ = (x - y)(x² + xy + y²)

Taking the RHS,

(x - y)(x² + xy + y²) = x (x² + xy + y²) - y (x² + xy + y²)

= x³ + x²y + xy² - x²y - xy² - y³

= x³ - y³ = LHS

Hence, verified.
