Just straight-forward solving the eqauation

(3508)^2 - (3510*3508) = (3508)(3508 - 3510) = 3508 * (-2) = -7016(Option E)

(3508)^2 - (3510*3508) =

(A) 7020

(B) 0

(C) -2

(D) -3508

(E) -7016


From the question we can make out the answer is going to be -ve.
1,2,3 not possible.
if is going to be D: then the value which you are substracting should be greater than one ((3508)^2 - (3509 * 3508)) but it is not. So eliminating D.
So the answer is E

Kudos appreciated.

(3508)² - (3510*3508) =

(A) 7020

(B) 0

(C) -2

(D) -3508

(E) -7016


This calls for some factoring

(3508)² - (3510*3508) = (3508)(3508) - (3510)(3508)
= 3508(3508 - 3510)
= 3508(-2)
= -7016

Another approach is to keep track of the units digits only

(3508)² - (3510*3508) = (---6) - (---0)
= ----6

Since answer choice E is the only answer with units digit 6, E must be correct.

Cheers,
