  • Answer:

    [tex]\large\boxed{(1+2x^3)^2=4x^6+4x^3+1}[/tex]

    Step-by-step explanation:

    [tex](1+2x^3)^2\\\\\bold{METHOD\ 1:}\\\\(1+2x^3)^2=(1+2x^3)(1+2x^3)\qquad\text{use FOIL}\ (a+b)(c+d)=ac+ad+bc+bd\\\\=(1)(1)+(1)(2x^3)+(2x^3)(1)+(2x^3)(2x^3)\\\\=1+2x^3+2x^3+4x^6\qquad\text{combine like terms}\\\\=1+4x^3+4x^6[/tex]

    [tex]\bold{METHOD\ 2:}\\\\\text{use}\ (a+b)^2=a^2+2ab+b^2\\\\(1+2x^3)^2=1^2+2(1)(2x^3)+(2x^3)^2\\\\=1+4x^3+2^2(x^3)^2\\\\=1+4x^3+4x^6[/tex]
