    Let's do it together: Multiply the first terms of the binomials, what do you get?

    $$(x + 2)$$is one binomial and$$(x − 6)$$is another binomial. Each of x, 2 and -6 are called terms.

    A monomial is an expression that is either a numeral, a variable or the product of a numeral and one or more variables.

    Then multiply the first term of each binomial by the last term of the other and add these products.

    By following these steps you will see that $$(x + 2)(x − 6)=x^2 − 4x − 12$$
