(3x^2-8x+1)(-2x^2+x-2)

I have heard of the FOIL process but i still tend to do the problems wrong...

**Anonymous**, Thursday, November 15, 2007 at 11:05pmYou distribute.

What you do is, multiple the first number from the first bracket with the first number from the second bracket, then the second number from the second bracket and the third number from the second bracket. You then multiple the second number from the first bracket with the first number from the second bracket, then the second number from the second bracket and the third number from the second bracket. You do the same for the third number in the first bracket.

After you distribute, you should get:

(-6x^4 + 3x^3 - 6x^2 + 16x^3 - 8x^2 + 16x - 2x^2 + x - 2)

Then, you find common factors and add or subtract them, for example:

x^2 + 3x^2 + 4x + 6

= 4x^2 + 4x + 6

Remember when you multiple with exponents, you must add them and if you divide with exponents, you divide them.

**Anonymous**, Thursday, November 15, 2007 at 11:20pmNeed to make correction on what I wrote previously...

Remember when you multiple with exponents, you must add them and if you divide with exponents, you *subtract* them.
