# How do you find the product #4n(2n^3p^2-3np^2+5n)+4p(6n^2p-2np^2+3p)#?

##### 1 Answer

#### Explanation:

Simplify

Clear the parentheses by distributing the coefficients

There are no like terms, so this is as far as you can go.

Distributing these coefficients brings back the first answer, which was:
