Do you want to know how to solve Operations with Polynomials? you can do it in one easy steps.

Step by step guide to do Operations with Polynomials

  • When multiplying a monomial by a polynomial, use the distributive property.
    \(\color{blue}{a×(b+c)=a×b+a×c}\)
  • For adding and subtracting polynomials remember to find and combine like terms.

Example 1:

Multiply. \(4(3x-5)-4x=\)

Solution:

Use the distributive property: \(4(3x−5)= 12x−20\)

Now, combine like terms: \(4(3x-5)-4x=12x-20-4x=8x-20\)

Example 2:

Multiply. \(6x(3x+7)+12x-x^2=\)

Solution:

Use the distributive property: \(6x(3x+7)=18x^2+42x\)

Cobine like terms: \(6x(3x+7)+12x-x^2= 18x^2+42x+12x-x^2=17x^2+54x\)

Example 3:

Multiply. \(5(2x-6)-x^2+4x=\)

Solution:

Use the distributive property: \(5(2x-6)=10x-30 \)

Now, combine like terms: \(5(2x-6)-x^2+4x= 10x-30 -x^2+4x=-x^2+14x-30\)

Example 4:

Multiply. \(2x(6x+2)= \)

Solution:

Use the distributive property: \(2x(6+2)=12x^2+4x \)
