Well....your typing of this problem is ambiguous, to say the least!!

I wonder if you mean this:

a<SUP>2</SUP> - (b + c)<SUP>2</SUP>

If that's the case, use the pattern for factoring a difference of two squares:
x<SUP>2</SUP> - y<SUP>2</SUP> = (x + y)(x - y)

If I've misinterpreted your problem, please repost with clarification.
