Algebra

  • This question has several parts that must be completed sequentially.
     (x + 2)(x − 9)(x − 4) 
  •  First, use the FOIL shortcut pattern as follows to find the product of the latter two binomials.
  • Step 1. Multiply x · x.
  • Step 2. Multiply −9 · x and −4 · and combine.
    Step 3. Multiply (−9) · (−4).
  • x + 2)(x − 9)(x − 4) = (x + 2) ( x^2  – _____  x + ____  )
