Express (2root5 - 3root10)^2 in the form a+broot2 and hence find the values of a and b. If you can please help and explain the method and how to solve equations similar to this. Thanks

That is not an equation. Anyway: , so:
a = 50, b = -60

show us some of your work...apply the well known identity (a-b)^2 =a^2+b^2-2ab....where a and b could be anything...in your case 2root5 or 2root10......try it
