### Multiplying Polynomials

• 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.

### Multiplying Polynomials

Multiply:
( 2x + 4y )( 6x2 − 3xy + 5y2 )
• ( 2x )( 6x2 ) + ( 2x )( − 3xy ) + ( 2x )( 5y2 ) + ( 4y )( 6x2 ) + ( 4y )( − 3xy ) + ( 4y )( 5y2 )
• 12x3 − 6x2y + 10xy2 + 24x2y − 12xy2 + 20y3
12x3 + 18x2y − 2xy2 + 20y3
Multiply:
( 3j − 7k )( 5j2 + 2jk − k2 )
• ( 3j )( 5j2 ) + ( 3j )( 2jk ) + ( 3j )( − k2 ) + ( − 7k )( 5j2 ) + ( − 7k )( 2jk ) + ( − 7k )( − k2 )
• 15j3 + 6j2k − 3jk2 − 35j2k − 14jk2 + 7k3
15j3 − 29j2k − 17k2 + 7k3
Multiply:
( 6x2 − 4x + 10 )( 4x2 + 3x + 5 )
• ( 6x2 )( 4x2 ) + ( 6x2 )( 3x ) + ( 6x )( 5 ) + ( − 4x )( 4x2 ) + ( − 4x )( 3x ) + ( − 4x )( 5 ) + ( 10 )( 4x2 ) + ( 10 )( 3x ) + ( 10 )( 5 )
• 24x4 + 18x3 + 30x − 16x3 − 12x2 − 20x + 40x2 + 30x + 50
24x4 + 2x3 + 28x2 + 40x + 50
Multiply:
( 8r2 + 10r − 4 )( 3r2 − 2r − 1 )
• ( 8r2 )( 3r2 ) + ( 8r2 )( − 2r ) + ( 8r2 )( − 1 ) + ( 10r )( 3r2 ) + ( 10r )( − 2r ) + ( 10r )( − 1 ) + ( − 4 )( 3r2 ) + ( − 4 )( − 2r ) + ( − 4 )( − 1 )
• 24r4 − 16r3 − 8r2 + 30r3 − 20r2 − 10r − 12r2 + 8r + 4
24r4 + 14r3 − 40r2 − 2r + 4

• Foil:( 4x )( 8x ) + ( 4x )( 7 ) + ( − 5 )( 8 ) + ( − 5 )( 7 )
• 32x2 + 28x − 40 − 35
32x2 + 28x − 75
Multiply:
( 6p + 12 )( 10p − 8 )
• ( 6p )( 10p ) + ( 6p )( − 8 ) + ( 12 )( 10p ) + ( 12 )( − 8 )
• 60p2 − 48p + 120p − 96
60p2 + 120p − 144
Multiply:
( c − 12 )( 3c + 2 )
• ( c )( 3c ) + ( c )( 2 ) + ( − 12 )( 3c ) + ( − 12 )( 2 )
• 3c2 + 2c − 36c − 24
3c2 − 34c − 24
Multiply:
( 5a + 6b )( 7a − 9b )

28m2 − 39mn − 54n2
