Show/Hide Answer and Explanation

Correct Answer: B

Explanation Video

Did you memorize the expanded forms of these two expressions: (a + b)2 = a2 + 2ab + b2 and (a – b)2 = a2 – 2ab + b2? Now cancel the quantities that are identical in both columns by slashing off a2 and b2. You’re left with +2ab, which would be –80, compared to –2ab, which would be +80 (because a negative times a negative is a positive). Correct Answer: B.
