    (a+b)(a^2-ab + b^2)

    same thing as 2^1/2 + 2^1/2

    \((a^2-ab+b^2 )= (a^2-2ab+b^2)+ab = (a+b)^2+ab\) you already know a+b

    find ab

    we know a+b = 2*2^(1/2)

    would it be (a-b)^2 + ab? instead of (a+b)^2 + ab

    \((a^2-ab+b^2 )= (a^2+2ab+b^2)-3ab = (a+b)^2-3ab\)

    i was just trying to simplify...you can do that manually, but it'll become complicated...

    (a+b)^2 would be 8?

    yes. ab = 3/2 so, -3ab = -9/2 and 8+9/2 =... ?

    *8-9/2=..

    so answer is (2^1/2 times 2 )(7/2) Is it?

    \(2 \times 2^{(1/2)} \times 7/2 =2^{(1/2)} \times 7 \)
