Answer:

#z^2+16z+64#

Explanation:

Each term in the second bracket must be multiplied by each term in the first bracket.

Since #(z+8)^2=(z+8)(z+8)#

#rArr(color(red)(z+8))(z+8)#

#=color(red)(z)(z+8)color(red)(+8)(z+8)#

distribute the brackets.

#=z^2+8z+8z+64#

collect like terms.

#=z^2+16z+64#
