Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[a^2b^2=\left( a+b \right)\left( ab \right)\] \[x^212x+3649y^2=\left( x6 \right)^2\left( 7y \right)^2=?\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Hint: \[\Large (x6)^2  (7y)^2\] \[\Large ({\color{red}{x6}})^2  ({\color{blue}{7y}})^2\] \[\Large ({\color{red}{a}})^2  ({\color{blue}{b}})^2 = ({\color{red}{a}}{\color{blue}{b}})({\color{red}{a}}+{\color{blue}{b}})\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\Large x^2  12x + 36 = (x6)^2\] \[\Large 49y^2 = (7y)^2\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1use the difference of squares rule to factor \[\Large (x6)^2  (7y)^2\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0(x6)^2=x^12x36 right? (7y)^2=49y^2 right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1what I'm aiming for is to go from this \[\Large ({\color{red}{x6}})^2  ({\color{blue}{7y}})^2\] to this \[\Large ({\color{red}{x6}}{\color{blue}{7y}})({\color{red}{x6}}+{\color{blue}{7y}})\] I used the difference of squares rule
