Answer

$p^{2}-2p-24$

Work Step by Step

We are given the expression $(p+4)(p-6)$. We can find the product of this expression using the FOIL method. First terms: $p\times p=p^{2}$ Outer terms: $p\times-6=-6p$ Inner terms: $4\times p=4p$ Last terms: $4\times-6=-24$ Adding together: $p^{2}+(-6p)+4p+(-24)=p^{2}-6p+4p-24=p^{2}-2p-24$
