(2n+1)(2n1)(n+5)
I'm a little confused on how to do this one.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!
Thanks.

Hi Chelsea:
You are given three binomials which are to be multiplied. Were you asked to multiply three numbers, e.g., (3)(4)(7), you would likely multiply any two, and then combine the result with the third number for the final product. Well, the overall strategy is the same for three binomials. Beginning with(2n+1)(2n1), we recognize them as being a conjugal pair, the product of which is the difference of two squares. That is,
(2n+1)(2n1) = (2n)^2  (1)^2 = 4n^2  1.
Finally, use FOIL to evaluate
(4n^2  1)(n  5) and you are done. I leave the details for you to complete.
Regards,
Rich B.
Correction: The third binomial is given as (n+5), as opposed to (n5) as I have in the previous post.
Rich B.
Just use the foil method.

O utside
I nside

Mult. the first set of () together then the product of that to the last () and you'll have the answer.
