Example: x^{2}+16x+_____? Solution: (x)^{2 }+ 2.8.x + _____ This is the form of a^{2}+2.a.b+____ If the given expression is to be the square of a binomial then last term = b^{2} = 8^{2} = 64 Expression is = x^{2}+16x+64 which is equal to (x+8)^{2}. Directions: Fill in the following problems and write the answer in terms of (a+b)^{2} or (ab)^{2} form. Also write at least ten examples of your own.
