a.

The work in problems 9–11 makes them feel like the answers are going to have a lot of terms. What happens in the work of the problems that makes the answers be binomials?

b.

These answers are called the difference of two cubes (problem #9) and the sum of two cubes (problems 10 and 11). What about these answers makes them be the sum or difference of two cubes?
