2x^2 –y^2 = 2xy
2x^2 = 2xy+y^2

3x^2 = x^2 + 2xy+y^2 (adding x^2 on both sides)

3x^2 = (x+y)^2


Answer:- B

2x\(^2\)-y\(^2\)=2xy

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

replace 2xy by 2x\(^2\)-y\(^2\) and solve

Answer B.

Given: \(2x^2-y^2=2xy\) --> rearrange: \(2x^2=2xy+y^2\) --> add \(x^2\) to both parts of the equation: \(2x^2+x^2=x^2+2xy+y^2\) --> \(3x^2=(x+y)^2\).

Hope it's clear.

\(2x^2 – y^2 = 2xy\)

so, \(y^2 = 2x^2 - 2xy\) ............ (1)

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

Placing value of \(y^2\) from (1)

\(= x^2 + 2xy + 2x^2 - 2xy\)

\(= 3x^2\)

Answer = B

\(2x^2 - y^2 = 2xy\)

\((x+y)^2 = x^2 + 2xy + y^2 = x^2 + 2x^2 - y^2 + y^2 = 3x^2\). Ans (B).
