Have you tried substituting some concrete numbers instead of x to see what happens?

An easy way to think of it is to just remember the distributive property, a(b + c) = ab + ac, and apply it like so:

>(x + 6)^(2)

>(x + 6)(x + 6)

>x(x + 6) + 6(x + 6)  
>  
>x^(2) \+ 6x + 6(x + 6)  
>  
>x^(2) \+ 6x + 6x + 36  
>  
>x^(2) \+ 12x + 36

Because (x+6)^2 is shorthand for

(x+6)(x+6)

Btw:(x*6)^2 =x^2 (6^2 )=36x^2

The original equation can be expressed as (x+6)(x+6).  Then you would use FOIL (first, outside, inside, last). x•x+x•6+6x+6•6. Then simplify x^2 + 12x + 36
