Objective Multiply polynomials.

To multiply monomials and polynomials, you will use some of the properties of exponents that you learned earlier in this chapter.

Example 1: Multiplying Monomials
A. (6y3)(3y5) (6y3)(3y5) Group factors with like bases together. (6 3)(y3 y5) 18y8 Multiply. B. (3mn2) (9m2n) (3mn2)(9m2n) Group factors with like bases together. (3 9)(m m2)(n2  n) 27m3n3 Multiply.

Example 1C: Multiplying Monomials
( ) æ ç è - 2 1 12 4 t s ö ÷ ø Group factors with like bases together. ( ) g æ - ö ç è 2 1 12 4 t s ÷ ø Multiply.

When multiplying powers with the same base, keep the base and add the exponents.
x2  x3 = x2+3 = x5 Remember!

Group factors with like bases together. (3x3)(6x2)

To multiply a polynomial by a monomial, use the Distributive Property.

Example 2A: Multiplying a Polynomial by a Monomial
4(3x2 + 4x – 8) 4(3x2 + 4x – 8) Distribute 4. (4)3x2 +(4)4x – (4)8 Multiply. 12x2 + 16x – 32

Example 2B: Multiplying a Polynomial by a Monomial
6pq(2p – q) (6pq)(2p – q) Distribute 6pq. (6pq)2p + (6pq)(–q) Group like bases together. (6  2)(p  p)(q) + (–1)(6)(p)(q  q) 12p2q – 6pq2 Multiply.

Example 2C: Multiplying a Polynomial by a Monomial
1 ( ) x y 2 6 xy + 8 x y 2 2 2 x y ( ) + 2 6 1 xy y x 8 Distribute 2 1 x y x y x y ( ) æ ç è + 2 1 6 8 xy ö ÷ ø Group like bases together. x2 • x ( ) æ + ç è 1 • 6 2 y • y x2 • x2 y • y2 • 8 ö ÷ ø 3x3y2 + 4x4y3 Multiply.

Check It Out! Example 2 Multiply. a. 2(4x2 + x + 3) 2(4x2 + x + 3) Distribute 2. 2(4x2) + 2(x) + 2(3) Multiply. 8x2 + 2x + 6

Check It Out! Example 2 Multiply. b. 3ab(5a2 + b) 3ab(5a2 + b) Distribute 3ab. (3ab)(5a2) + (3ab)(b) Group like bases together. (3  5)(a  a2)(b) + (3)(a)(b  b) 15a3b + 3ab2 Multiply.

Check It Out! Example 2 Multiply. c. 5r2s2(r – 3s) 5r2s2(r – 3s) Distribute 5r2s2. (5r2s2)(r) – (5r2s2)(3s) Group like bases together. (5)(r2  r)(s2) – (5  3)(r2)(s2  s) 5r3s2 – 15r2s3 Multiply.

To multiply a binomial by a binomial, you can apply the Distributive Property more than once:
(x + 3)(x + 2) = x(x + 2) + 3(x + 2) Distribute x and 3. Distribute x and 3 again. = x(x + 2) + 3(x + 2) = x(x) + x(2) + 3(x) + 3(2) Multiply. = x2 + 2x + 3x + 6 Combine like terms. = x2 + 5x + 6

Another method for multiplying binomials is called the FOIL method.
1. Multiply the First terms. (x + 3)(x + 2) x x = x2 O 2. Multiply the Outer terms. (x + 3)(x + 2) x 2 = 2x I 3. Multiply the Inner terms. (x + 3)(x + 2) x = 3x L 4. Multiply the Last terms. (x + 3)(x + 2) = 6 (x + 3)(x + 2) = x2 + 2x + 3x + 6 = x2 + 5x + 6 F O I L

Example 3A: Multiplying Binomials
(s + 4)(s – 2) (s + 4)(s – 2) s(s – 2) + 4(s – 2) Distribute s and 4. s(s) + s(–2) + 4(s) + 4(–2) Distribute s and 4 again. s2 – 2s + 4s – 8 Multiply. s2 + 2s – 8 Combine like terms.

Example 3B: Multiplying Binomials
Write as a product of two binomials. (x – 4)2 (x – 4)(x – 4) Use the FOIL method. (x x) + (x (–4)) + (–4  x) + (–4  (–4)) x2 – 4x – 4x + 8 Multiply. x2 – 8x + 8 Combine like terms.

Example 3C: Multiplying Binomials
(8m2 – n)(m2 – 3n) Use the FOIL method. 8m2(m2) + 8m2(–3n) – n(m2) – n(–3n) 8m4 – 24m2n – m2n + 3n2 Multiply. 8m4 – 25m2n + 3n2 Combine like terms.

In the expression (x + 5)2, the base is (x + 5)
In the expression (x + 5)2, the base is (x + 5). (x + 5)2 = (x + 5)(x + 5) Helpful Hint

Check It Out! Example 3a Multiply. (a + 3)(a – 4) (a + 3)(a – 4) Distribute a and 3. a(a – 4)+3(a – 4) Distribute a and 3 again. a(a) + a(–4) + 3(a) + 3(–4) a2 – 4a + 3a – 12 Multiply. a2 – a – 12 Combine like terms.

Write as a product of two binomials. (x – 3)2
Check It Out! Example 3b Multiply. Write as a product of two binomials. (x – 3)2 (x – 3)(x – 3) Use the FOIL method. (x x) + (x(–3)) + (–3  x)+ (–3)(–3) x2 – 3x – 3x + 9 Multiply. x2 – 6x + 9 Combine like terms.

Check It Out! Example 3c Multiply. (2a – b2)(a + 4b2) (2a – b2)(a + 4b2) Use the FOIL method. 2a(a) + 2a(4b2) – b2(a) + (–b2)(4b2) 2a2 + 8ab2 – ab2 – 4b4 Multiply. 2a2 + 7ab2 – 4b4 Combine like terms.

To multiply polynomials with more than two terms, you can use the Distributive Property several times. Multiply (5x + 3) by (2x2 + 10x – 6): (5x + 3)(2x2 + 10x – 6) = 5x(2x2 + 10x – 6) + 3(2x2 + 10x – 6) = 5x(2x2 + 10x – 6) + 3(2x2 + 10x – 6) = 5x(2x2) + 5x(10x) + 5x(–6) + 3(2x2) + 3(10x) + 3(–6) = 10x3 + 50x2 – 30x + 6x2 + 30x – 18 = 10x3 + 56x2 – 18

You can also use a rectangle model to multiply polynomials with more than two terms. This is similar to finding the area of a rectangle with length (2x2 + 10x – 6) and width (5x + 3): 2x2 +10x –6 10x3 50x2 –30x 30x 6x2 –18 5x +3 Write the product of the monomials in each row and column: To find the product, add all of the terms inside the rectangle by combining like terms and simplifying if necessary. 10x3 + 6x2 + 50x2 + 30x – 30x – 18 10x3 + 56x2 – 18

Another method that can be used to multiply polynomials with more than two terms is the vertical method. This is similar to methods used to multiply whole numbers. Multiply each term in the top polynomial by 3. 2x2 + 10x – 6 5x + 3 Multiply each term in the top polynomial by 5x, and align like terms. 6x2 + 30x – 18 + 10x3 + 50x2 – 30x Combine like terms by adding vertically. 10x3 + 56x x – 18 10x3 + 56x – 18 Simplify.

Example 4A: Multiplying Polynomials
(x – 5)(x2 + 4x – 6) (x – 5 )(x2 + 4x – 6) Distribute x and –5. x(x2 + 4x – 6) – 5(x2 + 4x – 6) Distribute x and −5 again. x(x2) + x(4x) + x(–6) – 5(x2) – 5(4x) – 5(–6) x3 + 4x2 – 5x2 – 6x – 20x + 30 Simplify. x3 – x2 – 26x + 30 Combine like terms.

(2x – 5)(–4x2 – 10x + 3) Multiply each term in the top polynomial by –5. (2x – 5)(–4x2 – 10x + 3) Multiply each term in the top polynomial by 2x, and align like terms. –4x2 – 10x + 3 2x – 5 x 20x2 + 50x – 15 + –8x3 – 20x2 + 6x Combine like terms by adding vertically. –8x x – 15

Example 4C: Multiplying Polynomials
[(x + 3)(x + 3)](x + 3) Write as the product of three binomials. [x(x+3) + 3(x+3)](x + 3) Use the FOIL method on the first two factors. (x2 + 3x + 3x + 9)(x + 3) Multiply. (x2 + 6x + 9)(x + 3) Combine like terms.

Example 4C: Multiplying Polynomials
Use the Commutative Property of Multiplication. (x + 3)(x2 + 6x + 9) x(x2 + 6x + 9) + 3(x2 + 6x + 9) Distribute the x and 3. x(x2) + x(6x) + x(9) + 3(x2) + 3(6x) + 3(9) Distribute the x and 3 again. x3 + 6x2 + 9x + 3x2 + 18x + 27 Combine like terms. x3 + 9x2 + 27x + 27

Example 4D: Multiplying Polynomials
(3x + 1)(x3 – 4x2 – 7) Write the product of the monomials in each row and column. x3 4x2 –7 3x 3x4 12x3 –21x +1 4x2 x3 –7 Add all terms inside the rectangle. 3x4 + 12x3 + x3 + 4x2 – 21x – 7 3x4 + 13x3 + 4x2 – 21x – 7 Combine like terms.

A polynomial with m terms multiplied by a polynomial with n terms has a product that, before simplifying has mn terms. In Example 4A, there are 2 3, or 6 terms before simplifying. Helpful Hint
