Use FOIL to distribute two binomials. The FOIL method — which stands for first, outer, inner, and last — takes two binomials and multiplies them for a single quadratic equation. Solving for binomials with[more…]

In algebra, you can solve a quadratic equation by applying the square root rule. With a squared term and a constant, the special quadratic equation is easily solved.[more…]

Using the unFOIL method to factor quadratic equations into two binomials requires many steps. Prime factorization and order of decreasing powers are two parts of the unFOIL method, which helps you solve[more…]
