# How to Do Operations with Polynomials? (+FREE Worksheet!)

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.

### Operations with Polynomials – Example 1:

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

Solution:

Use the distributive property: $$\color{blue}{a×(b+c)=a×b+a×c}$$

Then: $$4(3x−5)= 12x−20$$

Now, combine like terms: $$12x-4x=8x$$

Then simplify: $$4(3x-5)-4x=12x-20-4x=8x-20$$

### Operations with Polynomials – Example 2:

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

Solution:

Use the distributive property: $$\color{blue}{a×(b+c)=a×b+a×c}$$

Then: $$6x(3x+7)=18x^2+42x$$

Now, combine like terms: $$18x^2-x^2=17x^2$$ , $$42x+12x=54x$$

Then simplify: $$6x(3x+7)+12x-x^2= 18x^2+42x+12x-x^2=17x^2+54x$$

### Operations with Polynomials – Example 3:

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

Solution:

Use the distributive property: $$\color{blue}{a×(b+c)=a×b+a×c}$$

Then: $$5(2x-6)=10x-30$$

Now, combine like terms: $$10x+4x=14x$$

Then simplify: $$5(2x-6)-x^2+4x= 10x-30 -x^2+4x=-x^2+14x-30$$

### Operations with Polynomials – Example 4:

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

Solution:

Use the distributive property: $$\color{blue}{a×(b+c)=a×b+a×c}$$

Then: $$2x(6x+2)=12x^2+4x$$
