To calculate: The simplified value of the expression (12y)2 .

Expert Solution

Answer to Problem 30E

The value of the expression (12y)2 is 4y24y+1 .

Explanation of Solution

Given information:

The expression (12y)2 .

Formula used:

The special product formula of perfect square to multiply the algebraic expressions is mathematically expressed as,

  (AB)2=A22AB+B2

Calculation:

Consider the given expression (12y)2 .

Recall the special product formula of perfect square to multiply the algebraic expressions is mathematically expressed as,

  (AB)2=A22AB+B2

Apply it,

  (12y)2=(1)22(2y)(1)+(2y)2=14y+4y2=4y24y+1

Thus, the value of the expression (12y)2 is 4y24y+1 .
