Dr. Eaton begins this lesson on Multiplying Polynomials by going over the Distributive Property with examples and then the FOIL Method which stands for first term, outer term, inner term, and last term. At the end are four video examples to make sure you understand the lecture.
Use the distributive property to multiply one polynomial by another polynomial.
You can use the FOIL method to multiply one binomial by another binomial. But it is best to avoid relying on the FOIL method. Instead, get used to multiplying two binomials by using the distributive property.
*These practice questions are only helpful when you work on them offline on a piece of paper and then use the solution steps function to check your answer.
