Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Then you can't really 'solve' it. You can multiply it out if you like, but it's just an expression.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0In math you have to be precise with language; 'solve' means a lot of different things; are you trying to expand it?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So it is telling you to expand it or express it in a different way: let 3x = a and 2y = b. Use the FOIL method and you get a^2  2ab + b^2
