Hey,

(x+y)^2 = x^2 + y^2 + 2(xy)

x+y is given, hence you can find out (x+y)^2

and x^2 + y^2 is given as well.

Plug in the respective values in the above-mentioned theorem

You will get xy!

Hi, joaolucas193
I would request you to add answer choices & OA so as to enable us to solve the problem.

$$(x+y)^2=x^2+y^2+2xy$$
Both x+y & $$x^2+y^2$$are given, substitute & find xy.

Thanking you.

P.S:- Kindly follow the rules of posting.
