#### Work Step by Step

$(6p+5)^{2}$ Use FOIL to simplify. FOIL: First (Multiply the first variables in the brackets), outside (Multiply the outer variables), Inside (Multiply the inside variables), Last (Multiply the last variables in the brackets). (6p)(6p) + 5(6p) + 5(6p) + (5)(5) $36p^{2}$ + 30p + 30p + 25 We add the 30p and 30p to get the simplified answer. $36p^{2}$ + 60p + 25 Thus the first term is $36p^{2}$ and thus the missing number is 36.
