MA.8.AR.1.2

Apply properties of operations to multiply two linear expressions with rational coefficients.

Examples

The product of (1.1+x) and (-2.3x) can be expressed as -2.53x-2.3x² or -2.3x²-2.53x.

Clarifications

Clarification 1: Problems are limited to products where at least one of the factors is a monomial.

Clarification 2: Refer to Properties of Operations, Equality and Inequality (Appendix D).
