Its B

2x^2 -y^2 = 2xy
2x^2 = 2xy + y^2

Add x^2 on both sides we get

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

here we have to find the value of x^2 +y^2 +2xy in which 2xy
=2x^2 -y^2 (given ) hence ans is 3x^2.

Quite straight forward question

step 1:
(x+Y)^2 = X^2 +2xy + y^2

step 2:
now substitute 2xy from the equation.

(x+Y)^2 = X^2 +2x^2-y^2+y^2.

-y^2 and Y^2 cancels out

we are left with x^2+2X^2= 3X^2 Hence B.

A. x^2

We see that we are looking for the value of (x + y)^2 = x^2 + y^2 + 2xy.

We also see that 2x^2 - y^2 = 2xy; thus we can substitute for 2xy and we have:

x^2 + y^2 + 2x^2 - y^2 = 3x^2

Answer: B

An efficient way to solve this question is to foil (x + y)^2 and substitute- foiling is critical

X^2 + (2x^2 - y^2) + y^2
