Can I do anything with this? (a-3)^2

If (a-3)

^{2}is set equal something, such as (a-3)^{2}= 0, we could solve for the values of a. But by itself, all we could do is expand the square:(a-3)

If (a-3)^{2} is set equal something, such as (a-3)^{2} = 0, we could solve for the values of a. But by itself, all we could do is expand the square:

(a-3)^{2} = a^{2} - 6a + 9
