Learn and apply the FOIL method.
(First, Outside, Inside, Last)
That describes the pairs of terms that you must multiply and then add together.

To learn algebra, you really need the practice doing this yourself

chelsea
surely, it would be x^32x15
please correct me if i'm wrong

Chelsea is wrong. Only the 15 term is correct. There is no cubic (x^3) term

i looked at the site, now i'm really confused, could you just show me the answer and working out, we haven't done the foil method in school we do it differently.

What you are doing in school must be the same thing, perhaps with a different name.
Why do you keep changing your name?
When you multiply the first pair you get
2x * x = 2x^2
That is the first term.
When you multiply the "inside" pair you get 5x
Now you do the others and combine terms.

The answer you should get is
2x^2 +x 15
