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

(m^{2} - 5)(2m^{2} + 3) = m^{2}·2m^{2} + m^{2}·3 + -5·2m^{2} + -5·3^{
}

= 2m^{4} + 3m^{2} - 10m^{2} - 15

= 2m^{4} - 7m^{2} - 15

Hello Jessica,

Use FOIL method to multiply

(m^{2} - 5)(2m^{2} + 3)

m^{2}(2m^{2} + 3) - 5(2m^{2} + 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.
