# Simplify, give answer with non-negative exponents. (2x-y)^2

### 1 Answer | Add Yours

The expression (2x - y)^2 has to be simplified.

Use the expansion (a + b)^2 = a^2 + 2*a*b + b^2

(2x - y)^2

= (2x)^2 - 2*(2x)*y + y^2

= 4x^2 - 4xy + y^2

**The simplified form of (2x - y)^2 = 4x^2 - 4xy + y^2**
