**Quidditch**, Friday, September 26, 2008 at 1:27amFOIL is an acronym for

First Outer Inner Last

used when multiplying binomials.

1. Multiply the FIRST terms in each binomail. In this problem that would be

x^(1/2) * x^(1/2)

2. Multiply the OUTER terms:

x^(1/2) * 4

3. Multiply the INNER terms:

-2 * x^(1/2)

4. Multiply the LAST terms in each binomial:

-2 * 4

Then add all the like like terms.
