given that a=(6.0+/-0.1) and b=(17.5+/-0.3)(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

what is 2a^2 + b^2

i'm having so much trouble with this

i think we first go (6.0+/-0.1)^2 then times it by 2, and add (17.5+/-0.3)^2...i tried this but couldn't get the right answer...what am i doing wrong?

...ANY help would be greatly appreciated...i feel if someone will help me with just this question i can figure out how to do the rest. thank you in advance!!
