# Simplify: (3xy − 2ab)3 − (3xy + 2ab)3 - SSC (English Medium) Class 8 - Mathematics

#### Question

Simplify:

(3xy − 2ab)3 − (3xy + 2ab)3

#### Solution

It is known that,

$a^3 - b^3 = \left( a - b \right)\left( a^2 + b^2 + ab \right)$

$\ \left( 3xy - 2ab \right)^3 - \left( 3xy + 2ab \right)^3$

$= \left\{ \left( 3xy - 2ab \right) - \left( 3xy + 2ab \right) \right\}\left\{ \left( 3xy - 2ab \right)^2 + \left( 3xy + 2ab \right)^2 + \left( 3xy - 2ab \right)\left( 3xy + 2ab \right) \right\}$

$= \left( - 4ab \right)\left( 9 x^2 y^2 + 4 a^2 b^2 - 12abxy + 9 x^2 y^2 + 4 a^2 b^2 + 12abxy + 9 x^2 y^2 - 4 a^2 b^2 \right)$

$= \left( - 4ab \right)\left( 27 x^2 y^2 + 4 a^2 b^2 \right)$

$= - 108 x^2 y^2 ab - 16 a^3 b^3$

Is there an error in this question or solution?
