# How do you find the product (b+8)(b+2)?

Apr 24, 2017

By multiplying, you can get ${b}^{2} + 10 b + 16$

#### Explanation:

Multiply all terms $\left(b + 8\right) \left(b + 2\right)$
${b}^{2} + 2 b + 8 b + 16$
Arrange this as:

${b}^{2} + 10 b + 16$.

#### Explanation:

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

$\left(\textcolor{red}{b} + \textcolor{red}{8}\right) \left(\textcolor{b l u e}{b} + \textcolor{b l u e}{2}\right)$ becomes:

$\left(\textcolor{red}{b} \times \textcolor{b l u e}{b}\right) + \left(\textcolor{red}{b} \times \textcolor{b l u e}{2}\right) + \left(\textcolor{red}{8} \times \textcolor{b l u e}{b}\right) + \left(\textcolor{red}{8} \times \textcolor{b l u e}{2}\right)$

${b}^{2} + 2 b + 8 b + 16$

We can now combine like terms:

${b}^{2} + \left(2 + 8\right) b + 16$

${b}^{2} + 10 b + 16$
