Start with the distributive law:

A(B+C)

=AB+AC

and similarly

A(B+C+D)

=AB+AC+AD

Try:

4x(5x^{2}+3x+2)

=4x*5x^{2} + 4x*3x + 4x*2

=20x^{3} + 12x^{2} + 8x

Can you try your problem now?

You have to multiply -8z by *all* terms. Also remember that a negative times a negative equals a positive.

72z^3 + 8z^2 + 8z

I hope this helps a little more. Thanks for asking.
