Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1oh, well, I guess you could try expanding it (x5)^2 = (x5)(x5) = ? (4x10)^2 = (4x10)(4x10) = ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1remember foil? first we multiply the first terms in each parentheses (4x)*(4x) = ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yup! that looks much better now we have: x^210x+25 16x^280x+100

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1now we add everything together combine like terms: x^2 + 16x^2 = ?
