Middle School Math Solutions – Expand Calculator, Perfect Cube

Similarly to the perfect square formula, which we covered in the last post, we get the perfect cube formula. The perfect cube is when we cube a binomial. We use polynomial multiplication and the FOIL method for this formula.

Let’s take a look at it:

                                                    (a+b)^3=a^3+3a^2 b+3ab^2+b^3

Here’s the proof:

                                                    (a+b)^3=(a+b)(a+b)(a+b)
                                                                   =(a+b)(a^2+2ab+b^2)
                                                                   =a(a^2+2ab+b^2 )+b(a^2+2ab+b^2)
                                                                   =a^3+2a^2 b+ab^2+a^2 b+2ab^2+b^3
                                                                   =a^3+3a^2 b+3ab^2+b^3

As you can see there are many steps involved, so having this formula will help you solve perfect cube problems quickly.

Let’s see some examples.

First example (click here):

                                                                  Expand (x+1)^3

 1.  Apply the formula

                                                                       a=x,b=1

                                                 (x+1)^3=x^3+3∙x^2∙1+3∙x∙1^2+1^3
                                                                =x^3+3x^2+3x+1 

Next example (click here):

                                                                 Expand (2x-2)^3

1. Apply the formula

                                                                    a=2x,b=-2

                               (2x-2)^3=(2x)^3+3∙(2x)^2∙(-2)+3∙(2x)∙(-2)^2+(-2)^3
                                                =8x^3-24x^2+24x-8                             

Last example (click here):

                                                               Expand (s^2+2t)^3

1. Apply the formula

                                                                   a=s^2,b=2t

                                 (s^2+2t)^3=(s^2 )^3+3∙(s^2 )^2∙(2t)+3∙s^2∙(2t)^2+(2t)^3
                                                   =s^6+6s^4 t+12s^2 t^2+8t^3               

Not too difficult! Memorizing this formula will help you and become faster at cubing binomials. If you are looking for more practice problems or help, check out Symbolab’s Practice.
