Foil method x$^2$+5x+6

Work Step by Step

You multiply two binomials using the foil method which stands for: first, outer, inner, last. You multiply the first terms in each binomial and then add the products of the outer terms, inner terms, and last terms of each binomial. Then combine like terms. If there are more than two terms in each binomial then simply use the distributive property for each separate term in the first polynomial to multiply them to each term in the second polynomial and combine like terms. (x+2)(x+3) x$^2$+3x+2x+6 x$^2$+5x+6
