1 Section 9.6 What we are Learning: To multiply a polynomial by a monomialTo simplify expressions involving polynomials
2 Distributive Property: For any real numbera(b + c) = ab + acThis means: Multiply everything inside of the grouping symbol by what is on the outside of the grouping symbol.
3 Multiplying a Polynomial by a Monomial: Combine any like terms firstUse the distributive property: Multiply everything inside of the grouping symbol by what is on the outside of the grouping symbol.Use your Properties of Powers to multiply variables with exponentsYou can multiply vertically or horizontally
6 Solving Equations That Contain Polynomials: Combine any like termsUse the Distributive PropertyUse the Addition/Subtraction, Multiplication/Division Properties of Equality to solve for the variable.Remember: An equation is solved when a variable with a coefficient of one is on one side of the equation and the solution is on the other.
