### Example Question #9 : Polynomials: Ccss.Math.Content.Hsa Apr.A.1

Given  and  find .

Explanation:

To find the product of two polynomials first set up the operation.

Now, multiply each term from the first polynomial with each term in the second polynomial.

Remember the rules of exponents. When like base variables are multiplied together their exponents are added together.

Therefore, the product of these polynomials is,

Combine like terms to arrive at the final answer.
