Tutor for all your needs- both children and adults!

When it says "write each product as a trinomial", this basically means that your final product will have three (tri) parts.

(8z + 7)(z-2)- To solve this method, you have to use the FOIL method- F-FIRST, O-OUTSIDE, I-INSIDE, L-LAST

First: 8z x z= 8z^2

Outside: 8z x -2= -16z

Inside: 7 x z= 7z

Last: 7 x -2= -14

After putting it all together, your final answer will be 8z^2 -11z-14

Good catch on a simple mistake!

-16z + 7z = -9z

So the answer should be: 8 z^2 - 9z - 14

wouldnt it be for the middle monomial -9z cause -16+7 is -9 ?02/07/13
