Find the product of (x + 5)(x − 5)
The product of (a+b)(a-b) = a2 - b2
Answer: The product of (x+5)(x-5) is x2 - 25
Let's find the product of the given terms (x + 5) (x -5)
We know the algebraic identity (a + b) (a - b) as a2 - b2.
The given expression (x+5)(x-5) is following the identity with a = x and b = 5.
Therefore, (x+5)(x-5) = (x)2 - (5)2 = x2 - 25
Thus, the product of (x+5)(x-5) is x2 - 25
