Distributive property: (2y^2 + 3y - 1)(y^2 + 4y + 5) (answer)

Maralyn, You would multiply each term in the first polynomial (2y^2+3y-1) by every term in the second (y^2+4y+5). So what you have down so far is correct! For example, if I replaced the terms with letters - (2y^2+3y-1)=(A+B-C)and (y^2+4y+5)=(x+y+z) and used the distributive property you would...
