    try the difference of squares formula in reverse. its the same as FOILing but it results in a shortcut

    solve it means finding a solution to an equation simplifying means rewriting an expression if there is no equals sign its just an expression and there is nothing to solve for

    yeah usually they just say "simplify" if there is no equation to solve for anything.

    could you confirm my answer on another one? (-8a3b4)2 5(-8)^2(a)^2(b^4)^2 5(64)(a^2)(b^8) 320(a^6)(b^8)
