Is it something like this (2x+9)(3x-9)? How doI solve this type of problem? ------------ Yes, that is a binomial multiplied by a binomial. You multiply using a process called FOIL: (2x+9)(3x-9) F: (2x)(3x)=6x^2 O: (2x)(-9)=-18x I: (9)(3x)=27x L: (9)(-9)=-81 -------- Combine these four results to get: 6x^2+9x-81 That is the product of the two binomials. ------------ Cheers, Stan H.
