How Do You Solve a Word Problem by Multiplying Binomials?
Find the area of several rectangles that have been given monomial values. When the rectangles are put together, the sides are added together to form a binominal value. Now use the formula for area to multiply the two binomials. Use the FOIL method and then combine all the like terms to find the area of this larger rectangle.
