#### Answer

$$9x^{2} + 30xy + 25y^{2}$$

#### Work Step by Step

The first thing we want to do with this problem is to expand the expression so that we can see the terms clearly: $$(3x + 5y)(3x + 5y)$$ We use the FOIL method to evaluate this expression. We multiply each term within the first set of parentheses with each term in the second set of parentheses: $$9x^{2} + 15xy + 15xy + 25y^{2}$$ Now, we combine like terms: $$9x^{2} + 30xy + 25y^{2}$$
