6$m^{5}$ + $\frac{1}{4}$$m^{4} - \frac{1}{8}$$m^{3}$
1. FOIL (excluding $m^{3}$) (2m - 1/4)(3m + 1/2) = 2m(3m) + 2m(1/2) - (1/4)(3m) - (1/4)(1/2) 2. Multiply. 6$m^{2}$ + m - $\frac{3}{4}$m - $\frac{1}{8}$ 3. Add like terms. 6$m^{2}$ + $\frac{1}{4}$m - $\frac{1}{8}$ 4. Multiply each term by $m^{3}$ 6$m^{5}$ + $\frac{1}{4}$$m^{4} - \frac{1}{8}$$m^{3}$
