Multiplying Polynomials
To multiply any two polynomials, use the
Distributive Property and multiply each term in
the second polynomial by each term in the first.
Keep in mind that if one polynomial has m terms
and the other has n terms, then the product has
mn terms before it is simplified.

A standard Burly Box is p ft by 3p ft by 4p ft. A
large Burly Box has 1.5 ft added to each
dimension. Write a polynomial V(p) in standard
form that can be used to find the volume of a
large Burly Box.
The volume of a large Burly Box is the product of the
area of the base and height. V(p) = A(p)  h(p)
The area of the base of the large Burly Box is the
product of the length and width of the box.
A(p) = l(p)  w(p)
The length, width, and height of the large Burly Box
are greater than that of the standard Burly Box. l(p)
= p + 1.5, w(p) = 3p + 1.5, h(p) = 4p + 1.5

Notice the coefficients of the variables in the final
product of (a + b)3. these coefficients are the numbers
from the third row of Pascal's triangle.
Each row of Pascal’s triangle gives the coefficients of the
corresponding binomial expansion. The pattern in the table
can be extended to apply to the expansion of any binomial
of the form (a + b)n, where n is a whole number.
