This packet will show you how to multiply polynomials and how to use the FOIL system.
I will go over to remind exactly what polynomials are and what you do with them, go over what foiling is,and an examples of multiplying regular polynomials and then multiplying two binomials using foiling!
Polynomial: is just an expression that has a bunch of variable or constant terms in them that are raised to non-zero exponents.
Fields relating to architecture, agriculture, engineering fields such as electrical and civil engineering and various other science related jobs. Even people with regular business jobs use polynomials! It is even used in our regular finances!
keep this in mind in mind: you can ONLY use it for the special case of multiplying two binomials. You can NOT use it at ANY other time!
Foiling tells us this, you multiply the first terms, then the outer terms, then the inner and finally the last!
Includes multiplying polynomials and using foiling. (The second example shows that you do not even have to use foiling to multiply two binomials)
