In a practice exam that I took recently, I got the following data sufficiency question:

What is the value of p^3 - q^3?

1) p-q=0
2) p+q=0

How do you answer this question? More specifically, how do you reduce p^3 - q^3?

Thank you very much.

We don't need to factor the question stem.

from (1), p = q, so p^3 - q^3 = 0

Hi

So for S2: p + q = 0

it would be p = -q, hence, -q^3 - q^3 = -2q^3

Is this correct?
