Easy question.... Why is (a+b)^2 not equal to a^2+b^2? And why is the first one greater?

we know that ,[\(a+b)^{2} = a ^{2}+2ab+b ^{2} \] now we can see that \[a ^{2}+2ab+b ^{2} is definitely greater than the a ^{2}+b ^{2} .\] Becuz it has extra value that is "2ab " .

yeah! you r right . Thant's why the 1st one is greater . It has a^2 and B^2 also with 2ab . But the 2nd one only have a^2 and B^2 but no 2ab
