In this video, we are going to look at how to multiply special cases of binomials.

For example:

To multiply we have to multiply the binomial by itself. When we foil it, we get

After combining like terms, this simplifies to

By following this form, we can use this to solve any squared binomial.

For example:

can be solved by plugging in 4 for where we see *b*. This will give us a final answer of

Another special case example would be to multiply

When we foil it we get

After combining like terms, it simplifies to

By following this form, we can use this to solve other binomials written this way.

For example:

would be easily solvable by plugging in 4 for where we see b. This will give us a final answer of
