First you would see is there is a Greatest Common Factor. Then you would factor the difference of squares binomial. After factoring out the GCF, the square root of the first term is 'a' and the square root of the second term is 'b'. Once 'a' and 'b' are found, substitute them into the binomial factors (a + b)(a - b).
