Here, you can use the FOIL method to multiply the two binomials then simplify the products and combine any like terms:

   (m2 - 5)(2m2 + 3)  =  m2·2m2  +  m2·3  +  -5·2m2  +  -5·3

                               =  2m4  +  3m2  -  10m2  -  15

                               =  2m4  -  7m2  -  15

Hello Jessica,

Use FOIL method to multiply

(m2 - 5)(2m2 + 3)

m2(2m2 + 3) - 5(2m2 + 3)

Now, distribute, combine like terms and solve you'll get your answers. I hope it helps you. If you need further assistance you can ask.
