Answer:

See a solution process below:

Explanation:

To multiply these two terms you multiply each individual term in the left parenthesis by each individual term in the right parenthesis.

#(color(red)(3m) + color(red)(5))(color(blue)(2m) + color(blue)(3))# becomes:

#(color(red)(3m) xx color(blue)(2m)) + (color(red)(3m) xx color(blue)(3)) + (color(red)(5) xx color(blue)(2m)) + (color(red)(5) xx color(blue)(3))#

#6m^2 + 9m + 10m + 15#

We can now combine like terms:

#6m^2 + (9 + 10)m + 15#

#6m^2 + 19m + 15#
