    You can complete the square, probably.\[a^2 - 2ab + b^2 \implies (a - b)^2\]

    Yeah, that's why I added "probably" at the end. :)

    Should this (a^2-2ab+b^2+a+b) be the following: a^2+2ab+b^2+a+b

    @burhan101 The reason I asked about the sign is that if the -2ab had been +2ab the expression would have factored as shown on the attached file. As the problem is given, the expression does not factor over the set of rational numbers.
