### Example Question #22 : How To Use Foil With The Distributive Property

Expand the following:

Explanation:

To reach the solution, use the FOIL method of the distributive property. This stands for First, Outer, Inner, Last. In this particular problem, we begin by multiplying the first two  together, yielding . Then, we multiply  by the outer number, which is , yielding . Next, we multiply the two inner numbers,  and , yielding . Finally, we multiply the last two numbers,  and , yielding . Thus, when we add all those together, the answer is  .
