I don't thinks it's +25 but I do think it's +10 as 2x5=10.

you could always try a genrator on google.

tell me how you get on.

(w+5)^2 = (w+5)(w+5)

= w^2 + 10w + 25

you could have easily discovered your answer was wrong by substituting in a value for w, say w=1

(w+5)^2 = (1+5)^2 = 6^2 = 36

w^2+25 = 1+25 = 26

Bzzzzt!
