Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Umm...no. I just got confused again. It turns into: [1(3) 2] squared. Then I get lost.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok, so now, just lose the inner brackets around 3. That gets you (132)squared. and two negatives is a positive so 13 becomes 1+3 1+32 is 2. Square that and we get 4.
