Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Should this (a^22ab+b^2+a+b) be the following: a^2+2ab+b^2+a+b

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@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.
