Answer:

Multiplying this would give us: #x^3+x^2-10x+8#

Explanation:

So you need to use the distributive property meaning that whatever is inside the first set of parentheses (#x+4#) must get multiplied by whatever is in the other set of parentheses.

#(x+4)(x^2-3x+2)#
#x^3-3x^2+2x+4x^2-12x+8# -Distribute and combine like term
#x^3+x^2-10x+8#
