Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Hey! Ok first we write 36 as a square in order to express x236 as a difference squares so what do we get?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2so we are just writing 36 as a square

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I barley started learning this, since a square is 4 is it 36/4? Im just taking a guess?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0v^2 — 36 = v^2 — 6^2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Well it was like this 6^2 before right? so they put it into this 36 b.c 6^2=36 so now they want it back to 6^2 @ninowletonzalez06

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2so if we put it back to 6^2 we get \[v ^{2}6^{2}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0since the symbol is subtraction it should be D since both of the signs are ()
