Lesson 5: Multiplying binomials by polynomials# Multiplying binomials by polynomials review

A review of how to multiply binomials like 1 + x by polynomials with more than two terms like x^2 - 5x - 6

We already know how to multiply binomials like $(x+2)(x-7)$ . In this article, we review a slightly more complicated skill: multiplying binomials by polynomials with more than two terms.

### Example

**Expand and simplify.**

Apply the distributive property.

Apply the distributive property again.

*Notice the pattern. We multiplied each term in the binomial by each term in the trinomial.*

Simplify.
