Choose the correct simplification of the expression (−2x + 4y)(3x − 7y).
−6x^2 − 2xy − 28y^2
6x^2 + 26xy − 28y^2
−6x^2 + 26xy + 28y^2
−6x^2 + 26xy − 28y^2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1The word "binomial" comes from the two parts: "bi" which means two because it has two terms like (a +b) and "nomial" which means name or just term.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1(−2x + 4y)(3x − 7y) multiply the First terms of the binomials (2x)(3x) = 6x^2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1(2x + 4y) is a binomial and (3x 7y) is a binomial, so the FOIL method works when you are multiplying two binomials. Recall each of 2x, 4y, 3x, and 7y are called terms, right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1multiply the first term of each binomial by the last term of the other and add these products: "O" stands for Outer terms and "I" stands for inner terms

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1The last letter in the word "FOIL" is L and it stands for multiply the Last terms of the binomials.
