    factoring is one of the hardest (but easier as you practice) concepts you have to learn it's important BUT it's very very hard to explain over the internet. http://tutorial.math.lamar.edu/Classes/Alg/Factoring.aspx this site does a very good job of explaining it take a look at example 3 part e if you understand the basics and want an "advanced" one good luck

    you said factoring in the post btw but this isn't as bad as it looks \[(\frac{1}{2} - 2x^2 + y^2)^2 = (\frac{1}{2} - 2x^2 + y^2)(\frac{1}{2} - 2x^2 + y^2)\] the next part is just multiplying it out do you know how to do it?

    I remember now. If Im not wrong, we have an expression like this (a+b+c)^2=a^2+b^2+c^2+2(ab+ac+bc) Please correct me if im wrong.

    though that is with a more specific format the question must be asking for a square if the question was (a + b + c)(d + e + f) it would be (ad + ae + af + bd + be + bf + cd + ce + cf) does that make sense?

    lol so you understand? keep the link that i sent it look at it if you have time, then again, it's for factoring... if you need help with factoring, that is definitely the site to go to like i said before, factoring is a difficult to explain, especially more complicated ones
