    multiply each term of the anyone binomial into the other. Like this: (a+b)(c+d) = a(c+d) + b(c+d)

    @math456 oop - that notation is actually used for 'combination' or 'C' :P. Other wise it's good.

    forget that comment, @musicalrose , you're almost there, just keep in mind that it's a "-2/5" over there, so you include the 'minus' sign as well while multiplying.
