Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0uh.. the equation thing is not working... but, with the equation: (ax + by)^2 = (ax)^2 + 2abxy + (by)^2 however, you equation is not, what i call "regular" so, you have to find two number that multiplied is 2 and summed is 3 knowing this, the only option is 1 and 2 1x2 = 2 1+2 = 3
