## anonymous one year ago @Hero @dan815 @Kainui @triciaal @Preetha @Abhisar @mLe Could I Please Get Some Math Help? I'm Not Understanding The FOIL Method? Please Help. :(

1. triciaal

do you have a specific question you need help with then we can apply the distributive property also now known as the FOIL method?

7. triciaal

to use the distributive property multiply each term inside the parenthesis by the term outside

8. anonymous

9. triciaal

with factors you are applying this twice

10. anonymous

11. triciaal

sure

12. anonymous

can i do them on here or do i have to open a new question

13. triciaal

do one more here to review the process then if you have more do a new question and show your work ask to check answer

\[ (m – 6)(m + 3)\]\[m+m\]\[m+3\]\[-6+m\]\[-6+3\]

17. anonymous

is this right?

18. triciaal

no you must have 3 terms for the answer first * first + sum of middle two entries + last* last

21. triciaal

continue

22. anonymous

but i dont understand

23. triciaal

24. triciaal

25. anonymous

so m^2+3

26. anonymous

but what is -6(m+3)

27. triciaal

|dw:1433113928605:dw|

28. anonymous

m2+(-3m^2)-18

32. triciaal

NO you need to actually read the responses that's not what I have

33. triciaal

|dw:1433114229470:dw|

34. anonymous

sso it would be

35. triciaal

the signs are important

36. triciaal

yes as shown above

37. triciaal

do you have a better idea of how to use the distributive property and how to add like terms?

38. anonymous

no im still not understanding can we try another one

39. triciaal

first review what I have, Reread the complete thread then let me know where you have questions I will still do another with you it's ok but I want you to understand what to do

40. triciaal

factoring by finding the greatest common factor and using the distributive property are opposites like addition and subtraction or multiplication and division

43. anonymous

oh ok can we do another one

44. triciaal

post the question show your work and I will check
