# 10.3 Multiply polynomials  (Page 3/3)

 Page 3 / 3

You start by multiplying $23$ by $6$ to get $138.$

Then you multiply $23$ by $4,$ lining up the partial product in the correct columns.

Last, you add the partial products.

Now we'll apply this same method to multiply two binomials.

Multiply using the vertical method: $\left(5x-1\right)\left(2x-7\right).$

## Solution

It does not matter which binomial goes on the top. Line up the columns when you multiply as we did when we multiplied $23\left(46\right).$

 Multiply $2x-7$ by $-1$ . Multiply $2x-7$ by $5x$ . Add like terms.

Notice the partial products are the same as the terms in the FOIL method.

Multiply using the vertical method: $\left(4m-9\right)\left(3m-7\right).$

12 m 2 − 55 m + 63

Multiply using the vertical method: $\left(6n-5\right)\left(7n-2\right).$

42 n 2 − 47 n + 10

We have now used three methods for multiplying binomials. Be sure to practice each method, and try to decide which one you prefer. The three methods are listed here to help you remember them.

## Multiplying two binomials

To multiply binomials, use the:
• Distributive Property
• FOIL Method
• Vertical Method
Remember, FOIL only works when multiplying two binomials.

## Multiply a trinomial by a binomial

We have multiplied monomials by monomials, monomials by polynomials, and binomials by binomials. Now we're ready to multiply a trinomial by a binomial. Remember, the FOIL method will not work in this case, but we can use either the Distributive Property or the Vertical Method . We first look at an example using the Distributive Property.

Multiply using the Distributive Property: $\left(x+3\right)\left(2{x}^{2}-5x+8\right).$

## Solution

 Distribute. Multiply. $2{x}^{3}-5{x}^{2}+8x+6{x}^{2}-15x+24$ Combine like terms. $2{x}^{3}+{x}^{2}-7x+24$

Multiply using the Distributive Property: $\left(y-1\right)\left({y}^{2}-7y+2\right).$

y 3 − 8 y 2 + 9 y − 2

Multiply using the Distributive Property: $\left(x+2\right)\left(3{x}^{2}-4x+5\right).$

3 x 3 + 2 x 2 − 3 x + 10

Now let's do this same multiplication using the Vertical Method.

Multiply using the Vertical Method: $\left(x+3\right)\left(2{x}^{2}-5x+8\right).$

## Solution

It is easier to put the polynomial with fewer terms on the bottom because we get fewer partial products this way.

 Multiply $\left(2{x}^{2}-5x+8\right)$ by 3. Multiply $\left(2{x}^{2}-5x+8\right)$ by $x$ . Add like terms.

Multiply using the Vertical Method: $\left(y-1\right)\left({y}^{2}-7y+2\right).$

y 3 − 8 y 2 + 9 y − 2

Multiply using the Vertical Method: $\left(x+2\right)\left(3{x}^{2}-4x+5\right).$

3 x 3 + 2 x 2 − 3 x + 10

## Key concepts

• Use the FOIL method for multiplying two binomials.  Step 1. Multiply the First terms. Step 2. Multiply the Outer terms. Step 3. Multiply the Inner terms. Step 4. Multiply the Last terms. Step 5. Combine like terms, when possible.
• Multiplying Two Binomials: To multiply binomials, use the:
• Distributive Property
• FOIL Method
• Vertical Method
• Multiplying a Trinomial by a Binomial: To multiply a trinomial by a binomial, use the:
• Distributive Property
• Vertical Method
