Algebra I: Distributing multiplication of two 2nd degree polynomials
This is a free lesson from our course in Algebra I
 
   
In this lesson, you'll study how to multiply second degree polynomials. To multiply two 2nd degree polynomials, use the distributive property and then combine the like terms. To find the product of two polynomials, multiply each term of the first polynomial with all the terms of the second polynomial and then combine the like terms to get answer.
Steps:
the general rule is that each term in the first factor has to multiply each term in the other factor.
the number of products you get has to be the number of terms in the first factor times the number of terms in the second factor. For   example, a binomial times a binomial gives four products, while a binomial times a trinomial gives six products.
be very careful and methodical to avoid missing any terms.
after the multiplication is complete you can try to collect like terms to simplify the result.
