field who's characteristic is not 2

Hello,

At around 21 minutes in this tutorial video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2RVLBUncHJk)the lecturer states that if the characteristic of the field is not 2, then you can simplify the squared left-hand term as "Y". Can anyone explain why this is, and how he is able to make the simplification based on the characteristic of the field not being 2?

Thank you!
