### Multiplying Polynomials

- When multiplying polynomials together we want to make sure that every term of one polynomial, gets multiplied by every term in the second polynomial.
- If we have a monomial (one term) multiplied by a polynomial, the multiplication process is just the distributive property.
- If we have two binomials multiplied together we can use FOIL to ensure that we multiply the First, Outside, Inside, and Last terms together.
- If we have larger polynomials being multiplied together it is useful to organize into a table, or stack them on top of one another.

### Transcription: Multiplying Polynomials

*Welcome back to www.educator.com.*0000

*In this lesson we are going to take care of multiplying polynomials.*0002

*Specifically we will look at the multiplication process in general, so you can apply that to many different situations.*0009

*We will look at some more specific things like how you multiply a monomial by any type of polynomial *0015

*and how can you multiply two binomials together.*0021

*I will also show you some special techniques like how you can organize all of this information into a nice handy table.*0026

*I will show you the nice way that you can multiply two binomials using the method of foil. *0033

*Watch for all of these things to play a part. *0038

*Now in order to multiply two polynomials together, what you are trying to make sure is that every term in the first polynomial gets multiplied*0044

*by every single term in the second polynomial.*0052

*That way you will know every single term gets multiplied by every other term. *0056

*If you have one of your polynomials being a monomial, it only has one term and this looks just like the distributive property.*0061

*Let us do one real quick so you can see that it is just the distributive property.*0071

*We are going to take to 2x ^{4} that monomial one term and multiplied by 3x^{2} + 2x â€“ 5.*0075

*We will take it and multiply it by all of these terms right here.*0083

*We will have 2x ^{4} Ã— 3x^{2}, then we will have 2x^{4} Ã— 2x, and 2x^{4} Ã— -5.*0091

*Each of these needs to be simplified, but it is not so bad.*0115

*You take the 2 and 3, multiply them together and get 6.*0119

*And then we will use our product rule to take care of the x ^{4} and x^{2} by adding their exponents together x^{6}.*0124

*We will simply run down to all of the terms doing this one by one.*0134

* 2 Ã— 2 =4, then we add the exponents on x ^{4} and x^{1} power = x^{5}.*0137

*At the very end, 2 Ã— -5 = -10 and we will just keep the x ^{4}.*0147

*This represents our final polynomial after the two of them multiplied together.*0156

*Remember that we are looking so that every term in one is multiplied by every term in the other one. *0161

*What makes this a little bit more difficult is, of course, when you have more terms in your polynomials.*0171

*As long as you make sure that every term in one gets multiplied by every term in the other one should work out just fine. *0177

*Be very careful with this one and see how that turns out.*0183

*First, Iâ€™m going to take this first m ^{3} term and make sure it gets multiplied by all three of my other terms. *0187

*Let us put that out here.*0194

*I need to make sure m ^{3} gets multiplied by 2m^{2}.*0198

*Then I will have m ^{3} Ã— 4m and m^{3} Ã— 3. *0206

*Now if I stop to there I would not quite have the entire multiplication process down. *0221

*We also want to take the -2m and multiply that by all 3.*0226

*Let us go ahead and put that in there as well.*0232

*We will take -2m Ã— 2m ^{2}, then we will take another -2m Ã— 4m and then -2m Ã— 3.*0234

*That is quite a bit but almost there. *0264

*Now you have to take the 1 and multiplied by all 3 as well. *0266

*1 Ã— 2m ^{3}, 1 Ã— 4m,1 Ã— 3.*0272

*That is a lot of work and we still have lots of simplifying to do, *0292

*but we made sure that everything got multiplied so now it is just matter of simplifying.*0295

*Let us take it bit by bit.*0301

*Starting way up here at the beginning I have m ^{3} Ã— 2m^{2}, adding exponents that would be 2m^{5}.*0302

*Now I have m ^{3} Ã— 4m so add those exponents, and you will get 4m^{4}.*0313

*Onto m ^{3} Ã— 3 = 3m^{3} and now we continue down the list over here.*0324

*-2m Ã— 2m ^{2}, well 2 Ã— -2 = -4 then add the exponents and I will get m^{3}, that will take care of that.*0333

*We will go to this guy -2m Ã— 4m = -8m ^{2}. *0345

*Now this -2m Ã— 3 = -6m and that takes care of those.*0354

*Onto the last where we multiplied one by everything.,*0363

*Unfortunately, 1 Ã— anything as itself we will have 2m ^{2}, 4m and 3.*0366

*I have all of my terms and the resulting polynomial, but it still not done yet. *0376

*Now we have to combine our like terms.*0380

*Let us go through and see if we can highlight all the terms that are like.*0383

*I will start over here with 2m ^{5} and it looks like that is the only m^{5}, it has no other like terms to combine.*0387

*We will go on to m ^{4}, let us see what do we got for that.*0397

*I think that is the only one, so m ^{4}.*0403

*3m ^{3} looks like I have a couple of m^{3}, Iâ€™m going to highlight those.*0408

*I have some squares, I will highlight those.*0415

*Let us see what else do we have in here, it looks like we have single mâ€™s.*0420

*There is that one and there is that one and there is a single 3 in the m.*0428

*We can combine all these bit by bit.*0433

*2m ^{5}, since it is the only one.*0436

*4m ^{4}, since this the only one, let us check this after them.*0440

*Now I have 2m ^{3}, 3 â€“ 4=-1m^{3} and that will take care of those ones.*0446

*-8m ^{2} + 2m = -6m^{2}.*0459

*That one is done and that one is done. *0467

*-6m + 4m = -2m done and done.*0471

*And then we will just put our 3 in the end.*0478

*You can see it is quite a process when your polynomials get much bigger, *0483

*but it is possible to take every term and multiply it by every other term. *0487

*Now watch for later on how I will show you some special techniques to keep track of all of these terms that show up.*0492

*They will actually not be quite as bad as this one.*0498

*One way we can deal with much larger polynomials and keep track of all of those terms that multiplied together*0503

*is try and organize all of those terms in a useful way.*0508

*Iâ€™m going to show you two techniques that you can actually organize all that information. *0512

*One of them we will be using a table and another one we will look like more standard multiplication where you stack one on top of the other.*0517

*What I'm trying to with each of these methods is ensure that every term in one polynomial gets multiplied by every term in the other polynomials.*0524

*Iâ€™m not are changing the rule while we are doing a shortcut.*0531

*We are just organizing information in a better way.*0534

*No matter which method you use, make sure you do not forget to combine your like terms at the end so you can see the resulting polynomial.*0536

*Let us give it a try.*0543

*I want to multiply x ^{2} + 3x + 5 Ã— x -4.*0545

*The way Iâ€™m going to do this is first Iâ€™m going to write the first polynomial right on top of the second polynomial.*0550

*From there Iâ€™m going to start multiplying them term by term and I'm starting with that -4 in the bottom,*0566

*now multiply it by all the terms in that top polynomial.*0573

*Let us give it a try.*0580

*First I will do -4 Ã— 5 = -20 then I will take a -4 Ã— 3x = -12x and I have -4 Ã— x ^{2} = -4x^{2}.*0582

*That takes care of that -4 and make sure that it gets multiplied by all of the other terms.*0603

*We will do the same process with the x.*0609

*We will take it and we will multiply it by everything in that top polynomial.*0612

* x Ã— 5 = 5x and Iâ€™m going to write that one right underneath the other x terms.*0618

*This will help me combine my like terms later.*0626

*x Ã— 3x = 3x ^{2}.*0629

*And one more x Ã— x ^{2} = x^{3}.*0635

*I have all of my terms it is a matter of adding them up and I will do it column by column. *0644

*This will ensure I get all of my like terms -20 - 7x - 1x ^{2} and at the very beginning x^{3}.*0650

*That is my resulting polynomial. *0665

*Now another favorite way that I like to combine the terms of my polynomial is to use a table structure.*0669

*Watch how I set this one up.*0676

*First, along the top part of my table I'm going to write the terms of the first polynomial.*0679

*My terms are x ^{2}, 3x and 5. *0687

*Along the side of it I will write the terms of the other polynomials, so x, -4.*0697

*Now comes the fun part, we are going to fill in the boxes of this table by multiplying a row by a column.*0706

*In this first one we will take an x Ã— x ^{2}.*0713

*It feels like you are a completing some sort of word puzzle or something, only guesses would be a math puzzle.*0717

*Also x Ã— x ^{2} = x^{3}.*0722

*x Ã— 3x = 3x ^{2} and x Ã— 5 = 5x.*0728

*It looks pretty good.*0738

*I will take the next row and do the same thing. *0739

*-4 Ã— x ^{2} = -4x^{2}, - 4 Ã— 3x = -12x and -4 Ã— 5 = -20.*0743

*You will get exactly the same terms that you do know using the other method in a different way of looking at them.*0757

*We need to go through and start combining our like terms.*0764

*Looking at my x ^{3} that is my only x^{3} so I will just write it all by itself.*0768

*But I have a couple of x ^{2}'s so I will write both of those and combine them together, -4x^{2} + 3x =-x^{2}.*0776

*Here I have -12x + 5x =- 7x and of course the last one -20.*0789

*Oftentimes you will find your like terms are diagonals from each other, but it is not always the case that seems to be very common.*0800

*A good important thing to recognize in the very end is that you get the same answer either way.*0807

*Use whichever method works the best for you, and that you are more comfortable with.*0813

*Now that we have some good methods and above, let us try multiplying these polynomials again and see how it is a little bit easier. *0821

*I will use my table method and we will take the terms of one polynomial write along the top. *0832

*I will take the terms of the second polynomial and write them alongside.*0843

*You will see this will go much quicker m ^{3} â€“ 2m and 1, 2m^{2}, 4m and 3.*0848

*Let us fill in the boxes.*0864

*2m ^{2} + m^{3} = 2m^{5}, 2 Ã— -2 =-4m^{3}, 1 Ã— 2m^{2} = 2m^{2}.*0865

*On to the next row, 4m ^{4}, 4 Ã— -2 = -8m^{2}, 4m Ã— 1 = 4m.*0880

*Last row, 3 Ã— m ^{3} = 3m^{3}, 3 Ã— -2 =-6m and 3 Ã— 1 =3. *0896

*Let us go through and start combining everything.*0909

*I have a 2m ^{5} I will write that as our first term, 2m^{5}.*0911

*Iâ€™m onto my 4m ^{4} and I think that is the only one I have floating around in there, 4m^{4}.*0918

*We can call that one done.*0930

*3m ^{3} â€“ 4m^{3}, two of those I need to combine, that will be -1m^{3}.*0934

*Iâ€™m onto my squares, -8m ^{2} + 2m^{2} = -6m^{2}, -6m + 4m =-2m and the last number, 3.*0949

*The great part is that it goes through and combines all of your like terms and I know I got them off because they are all circle.*0977

*Iâ€™m going to fix this -1, so it is just a - m ^{3} but other than that I will say that this is a good result right here.*0984

*Some other nice techniques you can use to multiply polynomials together is if both of those polynomials happen to be binomials.*0995

*Remember that they have exactly two terms, this method is known as the method of foil.*1003

*That stands for a nice little saying it tells you to multiply the first terms together, the outside terms, the inside terms and the last terms.*1010

*It is a great way of helping you memorize and get all of those terms combined like they should.*1020

*It also saves you from creating a large structure like a table when you do not have to.*1027

*Let us see how it works with this one. *1032

*I have x -2 Ã— x - 6 Iâ€™m going to take this bit by bit.*1035

*The first terms in each of these binomials would be the x and the other x.*1042

*Let us multiply those together and that would give us an x ^{2}.*1047

*Then we will move on to the outside terms.*1056

*By outside that would be the x and -6 we will multiply those together, - 6x.*1060

*Continuing on, we are on inside terms, -2 and the x, they need to multiply together -2x.*1072

*And then our last terms -2 Ã— -6 = 12. *1084

*We do get all of our terms by remembering first outside and inside last.*1096

*With this method, oftentimes your outside and inside terms will be like terms*1101

*and you will be able to combine them, and this one is no different. *1106

*They combined to be 8x.*1108

*Once you have all of your terms feel free to write them out. *1112

*This is x ^{2} - 8x â€“ 4 + 12 and the more you use this method, it will come in handy for a factoring a little bit later on.*1115

*Let us try out our foil method as we go through some of these examples.*1129

*Here I want to multiply the following binomials, 5x - 6 Ã— 2y + 3.*1134

*First, I'm going to take the first terms together that will be the 5x and 2y, 5 Ã— 2 = 10x Ã— y.*1142

*That is as far as I can put those together since they are not like terms.*1154

*Outside terms that would be 5x and the 3 = 15x.*1159

*Onto inside terms, -6 Ã— 2y = 12y and the last terms -6 Ã— 3 = -18.*1168

*We got our first outside, inside, last and it looks like none of these are like terms.*1186

*I will just write them as they are 10xy + 15x -12y â€“ 18 and we will call this one done. *1190

*Let us try another one, and in this one you will see it has few more things that we can combine.*1206

*We are going to multiply - 4y + x and all of that will be multiple by 2y -3x.*1211

*Starting off with our first terms let me highlight them.*1218

*- 4y Ã— 2y = -8 and y Ã— y = y ^{2}.*1223

*That is the case here of our first terms.*1232

*Now we will do our outside terms, -4 Ã— -3 = 12 and x Ã— y.*1235

*Onto the inside terms, x Ã— 2y = 2xy.*1250

*Of course our last terms, -3x ^{2}.*1261

*Now that we have all of our terms notice how our outside and inside terms, they happen to be like terms so we will put them together.*1273

*That will give us our final polynomial, 8y ^{2} + 14xy - 3x^{2}.*1280

*We can say that this one is done.*1294

*One more example and this one is a little bit larger one.*1303

*In fact, the second polynomial in here is a trinomial so we will not be able to use the method of foil.*1307

*That is okay, we will still be able to multiply it together, *1315

*but I will definitely use something like a table to help me organize my information a little bit better. *1318

*Okay, along the top of this table, let us go ahead and write our first polynomial, x â€“ 5y.*1330

*Then along the rows we will put our second polynomial, I have an x ^{2} â€“ 2xy and 3y^{2}.*1340

*Here comes the fun part, just fill in all of those blanks by multiplying a row and a column.*1358

*x ^{2} Ã— x =x^{3}, x^{2} Ã— -5y = -5x^{2}y.*1364

*Onto the next row, -2xy Ã— x, the xâ€™s we can put those together as an x ^{2} and the a y.*1378

*The last part here -2xy Ã— -5y, let us put the yâ€™s together, -2 Ã— -5 =10xy ^{2}.*1389

*One more row, 3y ^{2} Ã— x =3xy^{2}.*1401

*I have 3y ^{2} Ã— -5y -15y^{3}.*1412

*We have all of our terms in there, now we need to combine the like terms.*1422

*Let us start here on the upper corner.*1427

*If we have any single x ^{3} that we can put with this one.*1429

*It look like it is all by its lonesome, we will just say x ^{3}.*1435

*We are looking for x ^{2}y, they must have x^{2} and they must have y, I think I see two of them, here is one and here is that other one.*1441

*Let us put these together, -2 + -5 = -7 and they are x ^{2}y terms.*1453

*Continuing on, I have an xy ^{2}.*1464

*I have two of those so let us put them together, we will take this one and we will take that one, 10 + 3= 13xy ^{2}.*1468

*That takes care of those terms.*1482

*One more -15y ^{3}, I will put it in -15y^{3}.*1483

*Now I have the entire polynomial.*1491

*Remember, at its core when you multiply polynomials you just have to make sure that every term gets multiplied by every other term.*1493

*Use these techniques such as foil or a table to help you organize all of those terms.*1500
