Hey, sorry about this. Its really obvious, i think there's just some really simple way to do it. Its annoying me, my teacher couldnt do it either!

Evaluate 6667²-3333² (without a calculator)

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I know there is just some really obvious way to do it. It was only worth 2 marks. Checking the answer on a calculator it was 33340000 and 6667-3333=3334 so i wasnt sure if that was how you did it, found the answer to the integers minus each other and add zeros. But i tried other examples and it didnt hold true.

Thanks
