**Reiny**, Sunday, March 25, 2012 at 10:07pmFirst of all to be a perfect square, the first and last terms should be perfect squares, and they are!

so it looks like we had

(3x ± 2)^2

for (3x+2)^2 we would get 9x^2 + 12x + 4

so -bx = 12x

b = -12

for (3x - 2)^2 we would get 9x^2 - 12x + 4

so -bx = -12x

b = 12

So b = ± 12
