#### Question

Find and correct the errors in the statement: (*a* − 4) (*a *− 2) = *a*^{2} − 8

#### Solution

L.H.S. = (*a* − 4) (*a* − 2) = (*a*)^{2} + [(− 4) + (− 2)] (*a*) + (− 4) (− 2)

= *a*^{2} − 6*a* + 8 ≠ R.H.S.

The correct statement is (*a *− 4) (*a* − 2) = *a*^{2} − 6*a* + 8

Is there an error in this question or solution?
