Slide R-16 R.1 Multiplying Polynomials The associative and distributive properties, together with the properties of exponents, can be used to multiply polynomials. Polynomials can be multiplied my multiplying each term of the first polynomial by each term of the second, then combining like terms.

Copyright © 2007 Pearson Education, Inc. Slide R-18 R.1 Multiplying Polynomials A binomial is a polynomial with two terms. The FOIL method can be used to multiply two binomials. The FOIL method says to multiply the First terms, the Outside terms, the Inside terms and the Last terms, then combine like terms.
