### Grade 8 - Mathematics7.7 Multiplication of Two Binomials - FOIL Method

 The FOIL method is another way to multiply binomials. "FOIL" is an acronym to remember a set of rules to perform this multiplication. To FOIL you multiply together all of the following: F: Firsts O: Outers I: Inners L: Lasts and then you add each of these products. Example: Find the product of (x+2) and (x+3). Solution: Multiply Firsts: x.x = x2 Outers: x.3 = 3x Inners: 2.x = 2x Lasts: 2.3 = 6 Adding: x2 + 3x + 2x + 6 Simplify: x2 + 5x + 6 Example: Find the product of (3x3-5) and (7x-1). Solution: (3x3-5).(7x-1) Multiply Firsts: 3x3 . 7x = 21x4 Outers: 3x3 . -1 = -3x3 Inners: -5.7x = -35x Lasts: -5 . -1 = 5 Adding: 21x4 -3x3 -35x + 5 Directions: Solve the following problems. Also write at least ten examples of your own multiplying two binomials using FOIL method.
