Basic algebra tricks reference

I’m studying math on my own and never had university math training. I’m able to read undergraduate math (baby Rudin Analysis, Linear Algebra Done Right by Axler). Moreover, I can write proofs on most of what I read. One problem, I’m not “comfortable” with basic or school algebra “tricks”. For example: a3+b3=(a+b)(a2−ab+b2) a′b′−ab=(a′−a)(b′−b)+a(b′−b)+b(a′−a) While they … Read more
