Answer:

#1 - 4v^2#

Explanation:

Tip: Remember this Algebraic Identity called the difference of squares:
#(a+b)(a-b) = a^2 - b^2 #

sub in # a = 1, b = 2v #

#(1+2v)(1-2v) = 1^2 - (2v)^2 = 1 - 4v^2 #

Answer:

#1-4v^2#

Explanation:

#(a+b)(a-b)# is equal to #a^2-b^2#
Here, #a=1# and #b=2v#
So plug that in and you get #1^2-2^2v^2#
Which is equal to #1-4v^2#
