### What is Meant by the Difference of Squares?

In mathematics, the difference of squares means that the squared number subtracted from the other squared number. The difference of squares is given by the algebraic identity. It can be factored according to identity. If “a” and “b” are the two numbers, then the difference of squares is given by:

a2-b2 =(a-b)(a+b)

For example, 2 and 4 are the two numbers, then the difference of squares of these numbers is:

22 – 42 = (2-4)(2+4)

22 – 42 =(-2)(6)

22 – 42 = -12

The other way to simplify this is:

22 – 42 = 4 – 16

22 – 42 = -12

Both methods will result in the same answer.
