For integers, x and y, x=y+2. From the table below, select the values that could correspond to x and x^2 − y^2.

x x^2−y^2
21
23
25
36
40
49

OE
[Reveal] Spoiler:
x = (y + 2) → (x – y) = 2
(x^2 – y^2) = (x – y)(x + y) = 2(x + y) → must be even 40 or 36


OA
[Reveal] Spoiler:
x = 21
(x^2 – y^2) = 40
