Work Step by Step

Using the Distributive Property, the product of the given expression, $ (x+2y)(x^2-2xy+4y^2) ,$ is \begin{array}{l}\require{cancel} x(x^2)+x(-2xy)+x(4y^2)+2y(x^2)+2y(-2xy)+2y(4y^2) \\\\= x^3-2x^2y+4xy^2+2x^2y-4xy^2+8y^3 \\\\= x^3+(-2x^2y+2x^2y)+(4xy^2-4xy^2)+8y^3 \\\\= x^3+8y^3 .\end{array}
