sovle: (3x - 2y)^2

The answer is 9x^2 + 4y^2 - 12xy but I do not know how to get the 12xy part.

20 - 4/5x is greater that or equal to 16, then:

The answer is x is less thatn or equal to 5 but again I do not know how to get this.

(3x - 2y)^2 = (3x-2y)(3x-2y)

You could use FOIL

(3x)(3x)+(3x)(-2y)+(-2y)(3x)+(-2y)(-2y)

= 9x^2 -12xy +4y^2

or use the distributive property of multipication directly

3x(3x-2y) - 2y(3x-2y)

=9 x^2 -6xy -6xy + 4y^2

= 9x^2 - 12 xy + 4y^2

20 - 4/5x >/= 16

If that is what you mean then

100 x - 4 >/= 80 x

20 x - 4 >/= 0

20 x >/= 4

x >/= 1/5

or if you mean

20 - (4/5)x >/= 16

20 - 16 >/= (4/5) x

4 >/= (4/5) x

5 >/= x
