# Algebra 1

posted by .

How would you solve the problem
(w - 2)^2
????
So far I've gotten w^2-2w*2-4
Where do I go from here?
Have I even gotten what I have right?

I understand when I'm with my teacher, but as soon as I got home, I was a little lost. So any help would be great!!
THANKS!! (:

• Algebra 1 -

You are almost there

your first line in the expansion probably was

w^2 - 2w - 2w + 4
the only terms we can add up are the two 2w terms

= w^2 - 4w + 4
