the given expression can be written as:
this can be simplified as :
now ,as square terms i.e x^2 or anything,always gives you only positive values
therefore,this expression can go to zero only if both the terms separately go to zero.(i hope you undersatnd this)
(eg:x^2+y^2=0 only when x=0 or y=0)
therefore i ccan conclude that :
3b-2a=0 and a+2=0
hence a=-2 and 3b=-4 or b=-4/3
hence a^2+b^2-ab=(4)+(16/9)+(2)(4/3) = (36+16+24)/9
