### 9.10: Identifying and Factoring the Sum and Difference of Two Cubes

Much like factoring the difference of two squares, we can use special techniques to factor the sum and difference of two cubes. An example of the sum of two cubes is *x*^{3} + 27, as this can be written as *x*^{3} + 3^{3}.

Watch this video to see an example of how we treat this special case of factoring.
