Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay. Thank you for your help. It's been a long time since I've used the FOIL method. I'm working on solving it...slowly but surely. I'll let you know if I come up with the same answer as yours.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@Buster14 And the I too, but since it is a perfect square binomial the O and the I should be the same
