## Understanding (8v)^2 Without Parentheses

In mathematics, the order of operations dictates how we solve equations. This is often remembered by the acronym PEMDAS (Parentheses, Exponents, Multiplication and Division, Addition and Subtraction).

When we see an expression like (8v)^2, the parentheses indicate that we should perform the operation inside them first. However, if we remove the parentheses, the expression becomes **8v^2**.

Let's break down the difference:

### With Parentheses:

**(8v)^2**means we square the entire expression inside the parentheses:- (8v)^2 = (8v) * (8v) =
**64v^2**

- (8v)^2 = (8v) * (8v) =

### Without Parentheses:

**8v^2**means we only square the variable**v**:- 8v^2 = 8 * v * v =
**8v^2**

- 8v^2 = 8 * v * v =

**In conclusion:**

- Removing the parentheses changes the meaning of the expression, resulting in a different outcome.
- Remember to follow the order of operations (PEMDAS) to ensure you are solving the equation correctly.
