Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0There is a way to make this more obvious. To the left is a square. Each side is x+y. What is the area? Well, it is (x+y)^2. But, we can also find the area, by summing up the areas of the four rectangles (two of which are squares) which make up our big square: area = x^2+xy+xy+y^2 = x^2+2xy+y^2
