# Multiplying Binomials

In this video, we are going to look at how to multiply binomials.
For example:
To multiply $(x+5)(x-3)$ we have to distribute twice.
When we distribute the x to the terms in the second binomial, we get $x^2$ and $-3x$. When we distribute the 5 to both terms, we get $5x$ and $-15$. So now we are left with
$x^2-3x+5x-15$
From here, we want to combine like terms, to give us a final answer of
$x^2+2x-15$
