Answer: (1) 13

Explanation:-

4x2 + 12xy – 8x + 9y2– 12y = (ax + by) (ax + by – 4)
(2x)2 + 2 x 2X x 3y – 8x + (3y)2 – 12y = (ax + by) (ax + by – 4)
(2x + 3y)2 – 4(2x + 3y) = (ax + by) (ax + by – 4)
(2x + 3y) (2x + 3y – 4) = (ax + by) (ax + by – 4)
Comparing on both side,
Then, a = 2  & b = 3
The value of a2 + b2 = 22 + 32
= 2 x 2 + 3 x 3
= 4 + 9
= 13

Hence, the answer is (1) 13.
