Quadratic Structure/Cubic Factoring

This section deals with equations that are reducible to quadratic structure. This means that we will be looking at equations that can look like quadratic equations if a variable is substituted for. From there, we can use techniques for solving quadratic equations to help us solve such equations.

The second part of this section deals with factoring and solving sum and difference of cubes.
