To simplify ( (8-2i)^2 ), you can use the FOIL method, which stands for First, Outer, Inner, Last.

First, multiply the first terms of each binomial: ( 8 \times 8 = 64 ).

Outer, multiply the outer terms of each binomial: ( 8 \times (-2i) = -16i ).

Inner, multiply the inner terms of each binomial: ( (-2i) \times 8 = -16i ).

Last, multiply the last terms of each binomial: ( (-2i) \times (-2i) = 4i^2 ).

Now, combine the results: ( 64 - 16i - 16i + 4i^2 ).

Remember that ( i^2 = -1 ), so ( 4i^2 = 4(-1) = -4 ).

Combine like terms: ( 64 - 32i - 4 ).

Finally, simplify: ( 60 - 32i ).

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
