How do you multiply #(7x-x^2)^2#?
We could multiply this out all the way by hand.
And if we multiply those binomials by FOILing
And if you wanted to factor that:
or rewrite it as
FOILing is when you multiply the first terms of both binomials, then you multiply the first term of the first binomial and the second term of the second binomial, then the second term of the first binomial and the first term of the second binomial, then the last terms of both binomials. Just remember FOIL - First Outside Inside Last.
