Topic: Name: Institutional Affiliation: When you have two polynomials we use the distributive property to multiply each term of the first polynomial by each term in the second polynomial. The distributive property: we multiply the last terms of each of the binomials to get the fourth term of the resulting polynomial and then we simplify. For example: (3x+4)(2x+5)=3x(2x)+3x(5)+4(2x)+4(5) F O I L =6x2+15x+8x+20 =6x2+23x+20 [...]
Explain how to multiply polynomials when neither is a monomial. Give examples. Write a simplified polynomial that represents the length of a rectangle. Explain how to multiply two binomials using the FOIL method. Give examples with your explanation.
