(a+b)^2 = a^2 + 2ab + b^2 expand the brackets above using that formula

be careful of brackets - it's (2sqrt(5))^2 for example

@MrNood is doing a good job.

You can use the square of a binomial pattern he showed you, or you can just use FOIL.

You are close, but you need to be careful with the parentheses. @MrNood mentioned that too. \((2\sqrt5)^2 + 2 \times 2\sqrt5 \times 3\sqrt7 + (3\sqrt7)^2 \)

Ok, now you can square the first and last terms, and multiply out the middle term.

How do i square the first and last terms?

OpenStudy (mathstudent55):

Square the number that multiplies the root. Then square the root, which is just the number without the root. Then you multiply them together. \((2\sqrt5)^2 + 12 \sqrt{35} + (3\sqrt7)^2\) \(= 4 \times 5 + 12\sqrt{35} + 9 \times 7\)

So If you cant add it together how do you simplify, does it mean not to simplify all the way down to one number?

OpenStudy (mathstudent55):

The answer is: \(= 20 + 12\sqrt{35} + 63\) \(= 83 + 12\sqrt{35}\) That is the final answer.

The second equation is the final answer? i need it in steps so i can write it so im trying to figure that out
