$(A+B)^2$

#### Work Step by Step

RECALL: A perfect square trinomial can be factored using either of the following formulas: (i) $a^2-2ab+b^2=(a-b)^2$ (ii) $a^2+2ab+b^2=(a+b)^2$ The given perfect square trinomial is similar in form to the one in formula (ii) above. Thus, the missing expression in the given statement is: $(A+B)^2$
