    To find a square trinomial you need to divide the B value by two then square. Do you know what the B value is? @helpapex

    Okay well the b value is a variable assigned to the middle term, or 24

    So to find the Perfect value you need to do (24/2)^2

    Yup! Good job. In the future is you have similar problems just remember (middle value/2)^2
