How do you multiply #(7x^2-2x+5)(x^2-x-7)#?
Sum of the product of each term of first trinomial and the second trinomial.
We can multiply the two trinomials together by finding the sum of the product of each term of the first trinomial to each term of the second trinomial (or the entire second trinomial):
We can reorder the expression to put
Now, we can combine like-terms:
See a solution process below:
To multiply these two terms you multiply each individual term in the left parenthesis by each individual term in the right parenthesis.
We can now group and combine like terms:
