simplify (2x+y)^2

x=2 right?

1. Ms. Sue

Since this is not an equation, we cannot determine the value of 2.

2. Steve

I don't know what they mean by simplify here. If you expand it out you get

4x^2 + 4xy + y^2

but that's not simpler, in my opinion. I think the problem as shown is not complete.
