Text Solution

Reasoning:

Identities:

\begin{align}& {(a+b)^{2}=a^{2}+2 a b+b^{2}} \\ {} & {(a-b)^{2}=a^{2}-2 a b+b^{2}} \\ {} & {(a+b)(a-b)=a^{2}-b^{2}}\end{align}

Steps:

(i) \begin{align}9 x^{2}+6 x y+y^{2}\!=\!(3 x)^{2}\!+\!2(3 x)(y)\!+\!(y)^{2}\end{align}

Identity:  \begin{align}(a+b)^{2}=a^{2}+2 a b+b^{2}\end{align}

Here \begin{align} a=3 x, b=y \end{align}

Hence   \begin{align}9 x^{2}+6 x y+y^{2}=(3 x+y)^{2}\end{align}

(ii) \begin{align}4 y^{2}-4 y+1=\left(2 y^{2}\right)-2(2 y)(1)+(1)^{2}\end{align}

Identity: \begin{align}(a-b)^{2}=a^{2}-2 a b+b^{2}\end{align}

Here \begin{align} a=2 y, b=1\end{align}

Hence \begin{align} 4 y^{2}-4 y+1=(2 y-1)^{2}\end{align}

(iii) \begin{align}x^{2}-\frac{y^{2}}{100}=(x)^{2}-\left(\frac{y}{10}\right)^{2}\end{align}

Identity: \begin{align}(a+b)(a-b)=a^{2}-b^{2}\end{align}

Here \begin{align}&{ a=x, b=\frac{y}{10}} \end{align}

Hence \begin{align}{ x^{2}-\frac{y^{2}}{100}=\left(x+\frac{y}{10}\right)\left(x-\frac{y}{10}\right)}\end{align}
