# How do you simplify (2w-4)^2?

Jul 7, 2018

It looks almost completely simplified already. I might factor something out.

Notice how you can rewrite this as:

${\left(2 w - 4\right)}^{2}$

$= {\left(2 \left(w - 2\right)\right)}^{2}$

As a result, you can write:

$= {2}^{2} {\left(w - 2\right)}^{2}$

$= \textcolor{b l u e}{4 {\left(w - 2\right)}^{2}}$
