Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@Study23 sometimes problems are posted incorrectly You are correct to assume that the 2 needed to be distributed. I had a feeling it was a power. No harm

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You need to factor it out. \(\ \huge (3x4y)^2 \). Thats the same as \(\ \huge (3x4y)(3x4y) \). Foiling, that leaves \(\ \huge 9x^2 + 24xy + 16 y^2 \).
