Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I can write the steps but i wanna know how to work it. Using the box method, you write the first polynomial down the side of the box with each term in a row of its own and the second polynomial across the top with each term in a column of its own. Then, multiply each row and column, and fill in the result in the corresponding empty box. Finally, combine like terms to simplify.
