**Reiny**, Tuesday, March 29, 2011 at 6:22pmyou can line it up just like normal arithmetic multiplication

2x-5

3x-1

------

......... -2x + 5

6x^2 -15x

_______________

6x^2 - 17x + 5

(hoping that the x terms line up vertically)

best way to do (5x+1)^2 is using FOIL in

(5x+1)(5x+1)

= 25x^2 + 5x + 5x + 1

= 25x^2 + 10x + 1
